Can bad cops be turned around? How far over the line must they go before they're irredeemable? Edinburgh's Inspector Rebus explores these questions while on an undercover assignment at a retraining class for bad cops. He digs up dirt on three classmates who turn out to be far more dangerous than anyone suspected. His life is threatened, as is friend and protégée Detective Siobhan Clark's. Joe Dunlop's reading gives a genuine voice to each character, down to the slightest differences in Scottish accent. His perfect pacing makes it possible to follow the intricately twist-ing plot, and his poetic cadence is sheer pleasure. Seventeen hours is a commitment, but Rankin is a master storyteller, and Dunlop brings an unusual level of intimacy to his finely tuned performance, making this time well spent. E.S.
