" Although scarred by his elite-corps army training, a nervous breakdown and a divorce, police detective Rebus is a dogged investigator in Edinburgh, Scotland. When a case involving a series of murders of young girls turns into a hunt for one of Rebus's old friends who has now turned into a vengeful enemy, Rebus is forced to confront his own long-repressed memories.

Detective John Rebus: His city is being terrorized by a baffling series of murders...and he's tied to a maniac by an invisible knot of blood. Once John Rebus served in Britain's elite SAS. Now he's an Edinburgh cop who hides from his memories, misses promotions and ignores a series of crank letters. But as the ghoulish killings mount and the tabloid headlines scream, Rebus cannot stop the feverish shrieks from within his own mind. Because he isn't just one cop trying to catch a killer, he's the man who's got all the pieces to the puzzle...
""Knots and Crosses"" introduces a gifted mystery novelist, a fascinating locale and the most compellingly complex detective hero at work today."
