Fleshmarket Alley

By Ian Rankin (Trade Paperback, 2010)
An illegal immigrant is found murdered in an Edinburgh housing scheme. Rebus is drawn into the case, but has other problems: his old police station has closed for business, and his masters would rather he retire than stick around. But as Rebus investigates, he must deal with the sleazy Edinburgh underworld, and maybe even fall in love.

  • "FLESHMARKET ALLEY is Rankin's best novel yet, and that's saying something." (Observer (UK)).
