The fifth Inspector Rebus novel from 'Britain's No.1 crime writer' DAILY MIRROR.

When a close colleague is brutally attacked, Inspector John Rebus is drawn into a case involving a hotel fire, an unidentified body, and a long forgotten night of terror and murder.

Pursued by dangerous ghosts and tormented by the coded secrets of his colleague's notebook, Rebus must piece together the most complex and confusing of jigsaws.

But not everyone wants the puzzle solved - perhaps not even Rebus himself...

great story with nice background for those of us who only know the more mature Rebus. this is the introduction to Shinbone Clark and she is showing her mettle. Worth the read if you are following the Rebus series and it does not have to be read in any particular order as the plots are always strong and stand on their own

I almost stopped reading him, but someone told me to give him some more time and read a few more. I'm glad I did, if the ones following are as good as this one, he definitely has one more fan
