January Books 24) Let It Bleed, by Ian Rankin

Another good one from Rankin, where three bizarre suicides unlock a festering mess of corruption and evil within the Edinburgh political scene. I was not quite convinced that as smart a guy as Inpector Rebus should have so little knowledge of the way the Scottish political system works, even in the obscure days before 1999, but I suppose this was a bit of "as-you-know-Bob" for Rankin's wider readership. There are some memorably horrible moments as well involving the Scottish weather, and the gruesome fate of Lucky the cat.
