Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gregor Jack has it all: young, wealthy, and charming, he's a highly respected member of Parliament, with a  beautiful wife--and a closet bursting with skeletons.  When he's caught in a police raid on an Edinburgh brothel, his house of cards begins to topple.  Enter Detective John Rebus: he smells a set-up.  When Jack's flamboyant wife Elizabeth disappears, Rebus uncovers a full-house of orgies, drunken parties, an incestuous "Pack" of deceitful chums...and ultimately Elizabeth's badly beaten body.  Now Rebus is on a new quest--to find a killer who holds all the cards. 
 
Strip Jack is a stellar entry in Ian Rankin's series, which The New York Times calls "A superior series."

Synopsis:

What begins as a case of typical British indiscretion, when a prominent member of Parliament is caught in a police raid on an Edinburgh brothel, turns into a nasty murder investigation when his party-happy wife is soon found beaten to death. It's up to Inspector Rebus to learn whether the MP is self-destructing, or the victim of a cruel set-up at the hands of a bitter rival. An intricately plotted mystery set in the high-stakes world of British society and politics. Martin's Press.
