Rankin, Ian Set In Darkness FIC RAN
Summary: On the eve of the first Scottish parliament in three hundred years,
Edinburgh is a city rife with political passions and expectations. Queensbury
House, the home of Scotland's new rulers, falls in the middle of John Rebus' turf,
keeping him busy with ceremonial tasks. That quickly changes, however, when a
long-dead body is discovered in a Queensbury House fireplace, a homeless man
throws himself off a bridge - leaving behind a suitcase full of cash - and an up-
and-coming politician is found murdered. The links between the three deaths lead
Rebus to a confrontation with one of Edinburgh's most notorious criminals, a man
he thought he'd put in jail for life. Someone's going to make a lot of money out of
Scotland's independence - and, as Rebus knows all too well, where there's big
money at stake, darkness gathers.
