"[I]t's interesting to see what Rankin was working on during the early days of his Rebus novels, and readers of that series will likely want to pick this one up." Library Journal
"Rankin, who can outwrite most anybody in the business, drops one clue too many early on, but...readers will zip right along as he swings from whodunit to international conspiracy plot to war-story retribution." Kirkus Reviews
From the Edgar Award-winning master of modern mystery comes a gripping thriller about a man who will do anything to find his brother's killer.
