Inspector John Rebus has done it again. A few days into a murder inquiry following the brutal death of an Edinburgh art dealer, Rebus blows up at his superior, DCS Gill Templer, and is sent into exile: the remote Scottish Police College, where Rebus must undergo "retraining." And he is not alone. At the college, he joins a group of cops equally troubled by authority - the so-called Resurrection Men, granted one last chance to redeem themselves and save their careers. To learn the merits of teamwork, they're supposed to investigate a long-unsolved case.
But there are those on the team who have their own secrets - secrets connected to the very case they've been given - and they'll stop at nothing to protect them. As if that's not enough, the Scottish Crime Squad has a favor to ask of Rebus. They think they've found someone who can help them nail a notorious gangster who has controlled the Edinburgh criminal underground for years. All they need is someone to act as go-between - and they've decided on Rebus, whether he likes it or not.
Back in Edinburgh, with only a bumbling rookie at her side instead of her longtime mentor Rebus, newly promoted Detective Sergeant Siobhan Clarke works the case of the murdered art dealer, a case that takes a surprising turn toward the very gangster Rebus is pursuing. Soon Siobhan and Rebus find themselves in the thick of a scandal with conspirators in every corner of Scotland, men who have no problem spilling blood to get what they want.

A typical Rankin novel with his star Rebus sent back to 'remedial' training with some potential 'dirty' cops, all with their own secrets. The old case they have been given to solve links to another case DS Siobhan Clarke is working on back in headquarters where Rebus usually works.
Ultimately the two cases make for a lot of characters, a densely complicated plot with lots of twists and counter twists. Despite this it good read but somewhat slow at times.

Another very good book by Rankin. Rebus is such a well-built fictional character that it's easy to forget he's not real. I also enjoyed the more involved role that the newly promoted Detective Sargent Siobhan Clarke played in this book
