Detective Inspector John Rebus may have gone too far - a bit of back chat is one thing, but letting fly at the Chief Superintendent with a full mug of the vending machine's finest can't be ignored. Rebus is sent back to the Police College for retraining, along with four of the Scottish Force's more unorthodox detectives. \n \nBut there's something bigger in the offing. The unsolved case the malcontents have been assigned to is one some of the team are familiar with. Rebus knew the victim only too well. Is the choice of case deliberate? Are the Big House looking not to resurrect their erstwhile colleagues, but rather to find a way of getting rid of them for good? \n \nBack in Edinburgh, the case Rebus left behind has thrown up a surprising suspect. Trawling through the guest list of a murdered art dealer's last private view, Detective Sergeant Siobhan Clarke comes across the signature of Morris Gerald Cafferty, Rebus's nemesis, recently released from the notorious Barlinnie. Siobhan's been promoted, but is she really ready to step into John Rebus's shoes?
