DI John Rebus is on the paper trail of a WWII war criminal ... until the running battle between two rival gangs on the city streets arrives at his door. A Chechen gangster is running prostitutes out of Bosnia via Tommy Telford, a Glaswegian upstart muscling in on Edinburgh territory. When his own daughter is the victim of a hit and run Rebus is forced to acknowledge that there is nothing he wouldn't do to bring down prime suspect Tommy Telford -- even if it means cutting a deal with the devil.

This had a really interesting story but it was very confusing the way it was written. The last 60 pages are what was most interesting. It took a whole to get the rhythm of his writing now with the random song quotes and lyrics. I doubt I'll read anything else by him but over all it was a good story.
