Amazon Editorial Review:
When a former soldier and recluse murders two 17-year-old students at a posh Edinburgh boarding school, Rebus immediately suspects there is more to the case than meets the eye. Army investigators show up to snoop around the scene of the crime, and links between the killer and a local group of "Goths" (a morbid clique of black-clad teens who listen to heavy metal music) begin to surface. But just as Rebus finds himself in the thick of the murder inquiry, he's threatened with suspension from the police force: a man who had been menacing his partner and friend, Detective Sergeant Siobhan Clarke, dies in the same house fire that has left Rebus with horrible, painful burns. Rebus is immediately suspected of foul play. Now Rebus is faced with two harrowing missions: He must get to the root of the boarding school killing even as he tries to clear his own name.

I actually had a copy of this one to give away. So I might have read it already. Time will tell.

No, I hadn't read this one. Another well done Rebus mystery. I was getting a bit concerned with this, because the plots and the subplots and the characters - each more colourful than the last - were mounting up and I couldn't see more than a few shadows of ways out, and I never thought all the loose ends would be tied up.

But they were, and once again it's Rebus's own unhealthy lifestyle that ties up the first and final thread.

I really enjoyed this! Thanks, EdwardStreet. You're a lot closer to Edinburgh than I am at the moment, so I'm not sure I can find a release point appropriate to the book.

Picked up at the Uncon. I'm slowly working my way through this series, so will get to it soon.

I am just loving this series. I love the characters and the plot which twists and turns before tying up, without giving much away in the build up.
