When Detective Inspector John Rebus and DC Siobhan Clarke investigate the case of a missing college student, they find themselves being toyed with by an anonymous email quiz-master who may be a killer. This BBC Radio production demonstrates the possibilities of effective audio drama. From the opening scene, the listener is cast into the middle of the action. The chatter of a press conference, discussions in the police station, and walks through the streets of Edinburgh are real experiences that surround the listener. Ron Donachie performs well, but he sounds a bit too healthy and even-tempered for Rebus. S.E.S. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 04]
