The Naming Of The Dead Summary

The Naming Of The Dead by Ian Rankin

A murder has been committed - but as the victim was a rapist, recently released from prison, no one is too concerned about the crime. That is, until Detective Inspector John Rebus and DS Siobhan Clarke uncover evidence that a serial killer is on the loose ...When Rebus also starts looking into the apparent suicide of an MP, he is abruptly warned off the case, not least because the G8 leaders have gathered in Scotland, and Rebus's bosses want him well out of the way. But Rebus has never been one to stick to the rules, and when Siobhan has a very personal reason for hunting down a riot cop, it looks as though both Rebus and Clarke may be up against their own side ...

Yes, it is that good' NEWS OF THE WORLD 'Rebus and Rankin are on the top of their form' MAIL ON SUNDAY 'Gripping stuff to keep brain cells turning on the beach' RED 'He has taken a momentous few days in recent British history (not just the G8 and the protests, but also the success of the Olympic bid followed a day later by the London bombings) and effortlessly interwoven the political and the criminal' SUNDAY TIMES
