Two years later, in 2007, he appeared in a few additional shows under his name, including Ian Rankin Investigates Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and Ian Rankin’s Hidden Edinburgh. The shorter form does not allow for the large number of complexities of a Rebus novel but Rankin's talent slips many of them in there.

Rebus takes advantage of their continuing friendship to observe crime scenes, obtain records, get information about investigations, etc. I really enjoyed this short story featuring DS Gish, set around a very exclusive and incredibly expensive apartment block in London. I knew I had a victim lying dead on the floor but had a cast of characters, any one of whom could have killed him. During lockdown we always had a jigsaw on the go, including literary ones featuring the worlds of Jane Austen, Dickens, Shakespeare and James Joyce. However, I was not saddened when they were wound up as they had run their course and I thought it was best that they finish on a high rather than fading into insignificance.

Rebus (sort of) protected Big Ger on occasion, on the theory that the mobster's incarceration would leave a vacuum at the top of Edinburgh's criminal empire.

I can’t say I felt much kinship with any of the targets, the author making it difficult to actually like them, but I was caught up in the puzzle. Haggard's accusations against his comrades bring in Detective Inspector Malcolm Fox, who investigates police corruption. I'm a fan of the Rebus series, and I enjoyed the book, though I'm sorry to see Rebus's health and well-being declining.
