A construction site turns up an old skeleton--and a new body. Are they related? Rankin presents life's underside through DI Rebus, but he also adds tantalizing tidbits of rock music lore as the detective holds forth on his favorite groups and albums. Samuel Gillies portrays Rebus with a melodious Scottish accent as Rebus's investigation runs the gamut from old rockers to new Scottish Parliament members. Gillies's delivery enhances Rankin's picture of police relationships and infighting. Best of all is a deathbed scene that keeps the listener on edge throughout. S.G.B.
