This is a particularly good book in the Rebus series. Rebus and Siobhan Clarke find themselves investigating an apparent serial killer and a dead junior government minister in the week of the 2005 G8 summit and the 7/7 bomb attacks in London; very often when mystery writers try to fold real life events into their novels they fail, but this works brilliantly, as Rankin takes us to meet well-meaning protestors, dodgy defence contractors, obstructive special branch officers and a local politician on the make, combining it with a final twist reminiscent of Agatha Christie except frankly rather better executed. I am getting a bit tired of Cafferty always turning up, but otherwise this is very strongly recommended.

Thank you for the article on Greek science in Arab hands.
I really enjoyed reading your article. I wish I could find similar articles that deal with the general preservation and transmission of knowledge between societies throughout human history.

thank you again.
