rebus

Most of this is excellent, a tale of a specialist assassin who happens also to have a milder form of hæmophilia, trying to find out who organised his latest hit, and of a private detective hired to find and kill him for a previous assignment. The detail of pursuit around the UK and USA, getting entangled in a nasty cult with links to spooky circles in Washington, is very good. But unfortunately I was completely unconvinced by the twist-in-the-tail resolutions of both main plot strands, which spoiled what was otherwise a very enjoyable read. (Not a Rebus book, despite my choice of icon.)

Have you caught the Doors Open adaptation? Not quite sure it worked. Because ... {spoilers}.

I think that is one of the few Rankin books I have not read yet, so will reserve the series until after I have done that!

It's a one-off (I assume); Marc Evans directed (of Resurrection Man and My Little Eye).
