    Description

    Some cases never leave you.

    For John Rebus, 40 years may have passed, but the death of beautiful, promiscuous Maria Turquand still preys on his mind. She was murdered in her hotel room on the night a famous rock star and his entourage were staying there, and Maria's killer has never been found.

    Meanwhile, the dark heart of Edinburgh remains up for grabs. A young pretender, Darryl Christie, may have staked his claim, but a vicious attack leaves him weakened and vulnerable, and an inquiry into a major money laundering scheme threatens his position. Has old-time crime boss Big Ger Cafferty really given up the ghost, or is he biding his time until Edinburgh is once more ripe for the picking?

    In a tale of twisted power, deep-rooted corruption and bitter rivalries, Rather Be the Devil showcases Rankin and Rebus at their unstoppable best.

    Mr Rankin at his best

    Where does Rather Be the Devil rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is vintage Rebus, nothing has been lost on this one

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rebus, of course

    What does James Macpherson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Understanding the accent

    Any additional comments?

    Ask Mr. Rankin for more of the same please. I see Cafferty is back so I expect some more in the near future.

    Never fails to entertain, Rebus is as good as ever

    If you could sum up Rather Be the Devil in three words, what would they be?

    Like an old friend

    What did you like best about this story?

    Character relationships

    What does James Macpherson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Brings out the characters own personalities.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes but it would be a spoiler to write about it, although Hank Marvin will suffice.

    Any additional comments?

    After 20 previous books, with not even a slightly 'iffy' one amongst them, this book shines. Rebus is on form and every bit as good as he's always been, albeit slightly less edgy than his younger days, he still packs a punch! highly recommended! Patrica Cornwell could well learn some lessons about her character's appeal from this!

    Very consistent Rankin

    Always very consistent, engaging and painfully well written. Worth 5 stars but saving one for in case.n

    Another great Rebus novel

    Took me a couple of chapters to warm to the narrator and then the voices he used for some of the well know characters didn't gel with what I thought they would be.

    But that is my preferences, great story by Rankin.

    great book

    The only complaint i have with this book is thst sometimes i found it very hsrd to determine who was talkingng because the voices of Fox and Rebus are almost indistinguishable.
