Let it Bleed - a review

Tell Me A Story

Let It Bleed (Inspector Rebus, #7)Let It Bleed by Ian Rankin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another nail-biting book from one of my favourite authors. As always, you become drawn into the dark life that surrounds Rankin's infamous, Inspector Rebus.

Rankin's stories are always overwrought, always insistent, and always completely electrifying in content. At the centre of them is Rebus, a police detective with bad habits and a large measure of corrosive humour - as human and flawed as the criminals he chases. 

Rebus has always understood that murder is inspired by passion or greed, but in 'Let It Bleed', when bodies begin to pile up, he recognises that there's nothing simple about it.
