For many longtime fans of Rankin's series, James MacPherson IS the voice of Inspector John Rebus, and with good reason. At book Number 21 in the series, MacPherson perfectly blends Rebus’s tough-guy exterior and insecure interior, exposing the complex layers of Rankin's much-loved character. MacPherson’s delivery of Rankin's signature wit tickles the funny bone, making listeners laugh despite a dark plot that has Rebus investigating a cold case with the help of friends Siobhan Clarke and Malcolm Fox. MacPherson has had plenty of practice perfecting Rebus, and his performance of the supporting characters, especially the antagonists, is superb. With atmosphere, pacing, and authentic emotion, MacPherson makes this audiobook an engrossing listen for old and new fans alike. J.F.
