The last people to die in Mary King's Close had been plague victims. But that was in the 1700s. Now a body has been discovered, brutally tortured and murdered in Edinburgh's buried city. Inspector John Rebus, ex-army, spots a possible paramilitary link. It is August in Edinburgh, the Festival is in full swing. No one wants to contemplate terrorism in the thronging city streets. Special Branch are interested, however, and Rebus finds himself seconded to an elite police unit with the mission of smashing whatever terrorist cell may exist. But the victim turns out to be a gangster's son, and the gangster wants revenge on his own terms.

James Macpherson, DCI Jardine of Taggart, brings an authentic voice to this fifth of the Rebus novels.

This story contains occasional use of strong language.

Rebus is a superbly drawn character, matched by the edgy authenticity of the Scottish locale and dialogue.' — Marcel Berlins, The Times

Macpherson keeps the authenticity level high'   — The Sunday-Times

JAMES MACPHERSON played DCI Jardine in Taggart for fifteen years - and then moved to The Bill, playing an Englishman. He has acted on stage in plays as diverse as The Taming of the Shrew and works by Hamish Wilson. On Radio Scotland he has presented regular programmes on books  — for which he interviewed Ian Rankin — and football. He lives in Glasgow.
