STRIP JACK

To the outside world, MP Gregor Jack is well-liked and successful. But his carefully nurtured career takes a tumble after a ‘mistake’ during a police raid on a notorious Edinburgh brothel. Then his wife disappears and a couple of bodies float into view where they shouldn’t… Rebus soon realises that not only is the MP’s image tarnishing fast – but someone wants to strip Jack naked – and Rebus wants to know why.

THE BLACK BOOK

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…

MORTAL CAUSES

It is August in Edinburgh and the Festival is in full swing… A brutally tortured body is discovered in one of the city’s ancient subterranean streets and marks on the corpse cause Rebus to suspect the involvement of sectarian activists. The prospect of a terrorist atrocity in a city heaving with tourists is almost unthinkable. When the victim turns out to be the son of a notorious gangster, Rebus realises he is sitting atop a volcano of mayhem – and it’s just about to erupt.
