Weak Series Debut
am 11. Mai 2000
Ian Rankin's debut John Rebus procedural has several similarities to John Harvey's Charlie Resnick series, weary, flawed, divorced, mid-level policeman hero, nasty plot (serial killer of little girls), set in a dark British city (Edinburgh). However, Rankin's book doesn't measure up in characterization, plausibility, or even plot to any of Harvey's books. Therefore, I will return my attention to finishing the Harvey books before giving Rankin a second chance.
