Saints of the Shadow Bible (Pre-Recorded Audio Player)
John Rebus, the
Edinburgh police inspector who languished in retirement but never in our
imaginations, has returned to the force. Rebus
is being investigated, along with his old team, for dirty police work in a thirty-year-old case.
Planting evidence, intimidating witnesses, and imparting rough justice
was part of the culture of policing in that era. As Rebus says, "I'm from the eighties, Peter---I'm not the newfangled touchy-feely model."
True to character, though, Rebus wants the truth, no matter what
light it shines on his own deeds. At the same time, he's working on a
case with Siobhan Clarke, his former protégé, involving
a mysterious car accident and a high-ranking politician's
son. Now that's just the kind of hornet's nest that Rebus likes to poke a
stick into. Both tangled plots are resolved masterfully. Good
to have you back, Rebus.
