Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Drugs.  Extortion.  Slavery.  Organized crime is fighting for a hold on John Rebus's peaceful Scotland.  And when Rebus rescues a young Bosnian girl forced into prostitution, he breaks a policeman's golden rule to never get personally involved in a case.  Add to that the hunt for an elderly Nazi accused of slaughtering an entire French village, and Rebus wonders just how evil humans can be.  Until his own daughter is mortally injured as a gangland warning for him to back off.  Then even a dedicated cop like Rebus might make a deal with the devil to find the culprit.  Not for justice.  For revenge. 
 
A chilling glimpse into the darkest extremes of human cruelty, The Hanging Garden is a page-turning literary thriller. This ninth entry in Ian Rankin's award-winning series confirms his reputation as a writer of rare and lasting gifts.

Synopsis:

Detective Inspector John Rebus is buried under a pile of paperwork, but the escalating dispute between the upstart Tommy Telford and Big Ger Cafferty's gang gives him an escape clause. And when Rebus takes under his wing a distraught Bosnian call girl, it gives him a personal reason to make sure Telford takes the high road back to Paisley. Within days, Rebus's daughter is the victim of a professional hit and run and Rebus knows that now there is nothing he wouldn't do to bring down prime suspect Telford...
