I'm an Ian Rankin fan (to the point where my other favourite crime writer, John Connolly, knows me as the Ian Rankin obsessive), and Doors Open is his weakest book, possibly even counting the early ones published under other names. Though that still makes it an above average effort, I'd not prioritise it.

I have actually read all of Rankin's books apart from Doors Open and The Flood, so I'm not exactly prioritising it!
