Naming of the Dead, The

by Rankin, Ian

Condition: New/New


London: Orion, 2006. First Impression. Bookplate laid in to title page, signed by Ian Rankin, a little wear to foot of spine. Dustwrapper not price-clipped, Signed Copy adhesive sticker attached, a little creasing to foot of spine. UNREAD. 420pp. July 2005, and the entire globe is watching Scotland. The assorted leaders of the G8 countries have gathered in the capital and with daily marches, demonstrations and scuffles on the streets, the police are stretched to the limit.. Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. New/New.

The leaders of the free world descend on Scotland for an international conference, and every cop in the country is needed for front-line duty...except one. John Rebus's reputation precedes him, and his bosses don't want him anywhere near Presidents Bush and Putin, which explains why he's manning an abandoned police station when a call comes in. During a preconference dinner at Edinburgh Castle, a delegate has fallen to his death. Accident, suicide, or something altogether more sinister? And is it linked to a grisly find close to the site of the gathering? Are the world's most powerful men at risk from a killer? While the government and secret services attempt to hush the whole thing up, Rebus knows he has only seventy-two hours to find the answers.
