    Can you help Inspector Rebus uncover the truth?

    Ian Rankin's John Rebus police procedurals follow the detective as he attempts to uncover the brutal crimes that hide behind the tourist-friendly facade of Edinburgh - all while battling a number of demons of his own...

    In these books, Rebus is meant to have retired but a life of leisure does not suit him all that well. He jumps at the chance to get involved in some grisly, sleazy cases...

    Rankin subtly introduces challenging social issues (racism, austerity, division) into each novel that show why he is regarded as one of Britain's finest crime writers.

Jack quickly makes some grand plans and starts drawing a dog, a car and a wrestling mask but he's surprised when he ends up with frilly knickers, a pet sea lion who requires high maintenance and on the run from the dastardly mayor...

    Jack's also having to deal with Coco, the girl next door who is oh-so annoying... He realises he's going to have to get better at drawing before disaster strikes again. The duo also end up playing in a summer blizzard and taking part in the local cake-off - with hilarious consequences!
