A police raid on an Edinburgh brothel captures seemingly by accident popular young local MP Gregor Jack. See all 98 reviews. The crime is there at the kernel but the personalities are for me what make the books such fun to read. A review of the book I recently read seemed to lament on the absence of the gruff, self-loathing critical rebel we know from later books. The book starts with a raid on an Edinburgh brothel, where amongst the many punters the police find a popular young MP Gregor Jack.
Its hard to say why I liked this a little less than the other outings, I think it is the other characters who seem a little thin and not as drawn out as they could have been but these stories aren't a great length and to do that would take away from other aspects.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Sep 07, Susan rated it really liked it. This is a novel set very firmly in Scotland with Rebus' investigations take him not only into the rough side and the privileged side of Edinburgh but also into the towns of nearby Fife and the highlands of Scotland. Rebus embarks on a journey into the mind and murky past of her super rich husband. A MP Gregor Jack is picked up in a raid at a brothel and the press are there already.
