DI Rebus of the Edinburgh Police is on the job again, this time dealing with the disappearance/death of the daughter of a wealthy banker. Her murder may or may not have something to do with an intricate cyberpuzzle posed by the elusive Quizmaster. Samuel Gillies has read several Rebus novels for Clipper and is obviously comfortable with the aging, prickly Scot and his fellow investigators. His gentle burr leads the listener through this latest police procedural complete with departmental politics, local color, and romantic distractions. Scots history and folklore loom over the case as Edinburgh's castle overshadows the city. Aside from the lack of some clarifying pauses, this is a fine rendering of a complex novel. J.B.G.
