Editorial Reviews

Review

“A powerfully complex crime novel that offers a panoramic portrait of modern Scotland, from Glasgow gangland to the oil platforms of the North Sea.” ―Mail on Sunday

“Rankin excels himself here as Rebus comes of age… a first-rate and gripping novel.” ―Sunday Times

“Rankin's dexterity in juggling plots and threats and motives lights up the darkness with a poet's grace. Reading him is like watching somebody juggle a dozen bottles of single malt without spilling a drop.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Rankin's book is long and complex but rich in character and incident as Rebus dodges his investigators, follows his hunches into some violent confrontations, and explores the strange mid-ocean world of North Sea oil.” ―Publishers Weekly

“Ian Rankin is a novelist of great scope, depth and power and Black & Blue is a dark, intensely evocative and altogether riveting thriller.” ―Jonathan Kellerman

--This text refers to the paperback edition.
