The Hanging Garden

The Hanging Garden

Murder's on his mind. What do an elusive war criminal, a scrappy young hood, and a scary gangster have in common? The investigative expertise of Inspector John Rebus, the star of a sterling series of mystery books by Scottish suspense scribe Ian Rankin, that's what. And when you throw sexual slavery, murder, and an attempt on the life of the Inspector's daughter into the pot, things really begin to boil. If you're a longtime devotee of the Rebus series, the crime-solving gifts the gruff gumshoe displays in The Hanging Garden will be familiar but fascinating. And if you're a newbie you can start the saga right here without a worry, but be warned — you'll soon be drooling to devour the entire series.
