Let It Bleed
A John Rebus MysteryBook - 2009
In the dark days and biting windstorms of an Edinburgh winter, two drop-out kids dive off the towering Forth Road Bridge. A civic office is spattered by a grisly gun blast. Two suicides and a murder that just don't add up, unless John Rebus can crunch the numbers. Following a trail that snakes through stark alleys and sad bars, shredded files and lacerated lives, Rebus finds himself up against a murderous conglomerate on the make in every arena of power. It's leeching the life and soul of his city and if it can, him, too.
