John Rebus stands accused: on trial for a crime that could put him behind bars for the rest of his life. Although it’s not the first time the legendary detective has taken the law into his own hands, it might be the last. What drove a good man to cross the line? Or have times changed, and the rules with them? Detective Inspector Siobhan Clarke faces Edinburgh’s most explosive case in years, as a corrupt cop goes missing after claiming to harbour secrets that could sink the city’s police force. But in this investigation, it seems all roads lead to Rebus – and Clarke’s twin loyalties to the public and the police will be tested to their limit. A reckoning is coming – and John Rebus may be hearing the call for last orders… 


It was an amazing book with an amazing story. The story was of John Rebus, who is charged and on trial for a crime that could result in a life sentence in prison. Although that's not the first time the renowned investigator has done so, it very well could be the last. Why did a decent man cross the queue? Or have the laws changed along with the times? A dishonest police officer goes missing after claiming to have information that might bring down the city's police department, and Detective Inspector Siobhan Clarke is faced with the most explosive case to hit Edinburgh in years. However, it appears that Rebus is the focus of the inquiry, and Clarke's dual loyalty to the public and the police will be put to the test.
