My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The call of Rebus’ world called me back quicker than I anticipated, there is something comforting about reading books where you already know the characters and the Rebus books seem to also be turning into quick reads. In this one (book 2) there is the joy of not having to wade through all that establishment of Rebus’ character, so the book could concentrate on the actual crime. The crime in question is the death of a junkie, his body found in what appears to be a satanic ritual. It turned out to be quite nicely seedy.
