Ian Rankin's Dead Souls is "crime writing of the highest order" (Daily Express).

Praise for Dead Souls

“Rebus resurgent... A brilliantly meshed plot which delivers on every count on its way to a conclusion as unexpected as it is inevitable.” —Literary Review

“...the whole is held together by Rankin's drum-tight characterization of Rebus as a man deeply shaken in his convictions, but unwilling to fall apart.” —Publishers Weekly
