Tooth & Nail

Tooth & Nail by Ian Rankin

Another excellent Rebus book. This book is slightly different as Rebus is sent to London to assist in the capture of a serial murderer. Rebus is not too sure of his ability to help out but as the plot proceeds his confidence in capturing the felon increases.

It is interesting to see London through Rebus's eyes. He is not 'in his element' and must face prejudice. Flight, Rebus's counterpart in London is a decent and good policeman and balances Rebus off very nicely. I love always how Rebus follows his own instincts and to hell with procedure.

In this book he falls for Lisa who wishes to profile the serial killer. I found the relationship a bit conntrived. Mysteries do not breed good relationships.

Rankin writes a great mystery with lots of twists and turns
