The Naming Of The Dead
hardcover
420 pages
Modern detective novel of one of Britain's most famous modern novelists, and first ever Ian Rankin book I've read. It takes place against the backdrop of July 2005's G8 meeting of world leaders in Scotland. A politician falls from the ramparts of Edinburgh Castle, while a serial killer seems to be targeting the area around Gleneagles Hotel, where the G8 leaders are staying. Inspector John Rebus must solve both cases while dealing with anarchist riots, demonstrations, and the disruptions that come when a city is in a state of siege.
