A new Rebus mystery narrated by James Macpherson, with his Scottish brogue and impeccable pacing, is always a satisfying experience. The gang's all here: Detective Inspector John Rebus is gruff, witty, and out of breath, thanks to emphysema; Siobhan Clarke is more measured, with crisp English undertones; and Malcolm Fox is a straight arrow, thoughtful and desperate to be part of the team. In this installment a body in a car is found by kids playing in the woods; the dead man has been missing for years. The new investigation appears to highlight the ineptitude, or even corruption, of the police (including Rebus) at the time the man went missing. Macpherson handles the twisty plot with ease, and since the crime boss, Big Ger Cafferty, is somehow involved, he gets to growl and snarl, too.
