Now this is the type of mystery that grabs and keeps my attention...
John Rebus is truly a character. One I have enjoyed reading about, getting to know, learning about his Scotland. I must admit I stopped reading Rankin for a bit since Exit Music because I didn't really want to get to know a new character because I was being crotchety. Serves me right. Rankin is currently weaving a few of his main characters together, and it works.
This was a great crime mystery, and the plot worked. Especially after reading the Stewart mystery. Comparing the two... one feels like a fluffy beach read, and the other one feels like one you would read by the fireplace, tea beside you, enjoying the atmosphere. A fine start to the books I will dive in to this year.
