Brilliant yet frequently frustrating to both his friends and his bosses, John Rebus may be off Edinburgh's police force, but his 21st case is one he can't let go of. Glamorous socialite Maria Turquand was murdered in her hotel room 40 years ago, and her killer has never been found. Meanwhile, the leadership of the city's criminal underground is up for grabs, and young pretender Darryl Christie may have staked his claim—though Rebus has his doubts that longtime ringleader Big Ger Cafferty has really settled down to a quiet retirement of clean living.
