Mystery & Suspense • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

When retired police inspector John Rebus gets a phone call from his daughter, Samantha, to say her husband is missing, he makes the journey to the north coast of Scotland to support her. Things quickly get complicated when Samantha becomes a suspect in the disappearance and another murder enquiry is being investigated by his old team in Edinburgh. James Macpherson is the perfect narrator for this mystery. His rich Scottish brogue immediately transports the listener to the wilds of Scotland while creating a wonderfully curmudgeonly Rebus. Macpherson's accomplished narration creates believable characters ranging from streetwise villains to world-weary police officers. He seamlessly moves between the characters' quick-fire dialogue, and his clear differentiation makes the characters easy to identify for newcomers to the series.
