In Rankin's most recent Scottish police procedural, DI John Rebus and DS Siobhan Clark investigate a murder in Edinburgh's Fleshmarket Alley. The story visits the city's seediest, most dangerous places and explores a modern fleshmarket, namely the trafficking of human beings. In spite of the length and expanding plot lines, Michael Page maintains the listener's interest and keeps us informed of the shifting story line. He also excels with voices, offering a range of believable British accents, as well as the accents of assorted immigrants, including Senegalese French. As always, Page delivers a sensitive reading of female voices, which isn't easy for male narrators. A very professional job. R.E.K. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 06]
