Boston:: Little Brown,, (2006.). Very good in a near fine dust jacket (usual toning to the pages.). First US printing. A recent novel in this excellent series set in Edinburgh, Scotland, featuring Inspector John Rebus and set against the background of the G8 meeting at Gleneagles. Reviewers called this series "brutal but beautifully written" and Rankin a "master of the moody modern police procedural." SIGNED on the title page with a small doodle of a hanged man. 452 pp.

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.
