Knots & Crosses is the first book in Ian Rankin’s Detective Rebus series. It definitely starts with quite a bang. Young girls getting murdered and no clues to connect them that they can see, mysterious notes showing up in Rebus’ mail, a gritty city as the background and the detectives to match, plus an interesting background story for the main character that pulled me in. I had a hard time putting this one down once I got started.
I picked up Knots & Crosses on a recommendation for a book to read set in Scotland. I wanted something to read that I could picture the places I had been and seen. This was perfect; murder, mystery, detectives and a good character study. I will definitely be continuing with this series.
