Another TBR busting venture. I have not got around to this one before because, basically, I didn't want to own up that the Rebus oeuvre is wound up in this.

Denial. A Parcel of Rogues

Anyway here we have Rebus battling against his arch enemy McCafferty at a time when Litvienko is in hospital in London and Russian Envoys are scattered around the various staterooms of Edinburgh hotels.

It's late autumn in Edinburgh and late autumn in the career of Detective Inspector John Rebus. As he tries to tie up some loose ends before retirement, a murder case intrudes. A dissident Russian poet has been found dead in what looks like a mugging gone wrong.
