Oilman Allan Mitchelson died for his principles. And convict Lenny Spaven died just to prove a point. Bible John terrorized Glasgow in the sixties and seventies, murdering three women he met in a local ballroom--and he was never caught. Now a copycat is at work. Nicknamed Bible Johnny by the media, he is a new menace with violent ambitions.The Bible Johnny case would be perfect for Inspector John Rebus, but after a run-in with a crooked senior officer, hes been shunted aside to one of Edinburghs toughest suburbs, where he investigates the murder of an off-duty oilman. His investigation takes him north to the oil rigs of Aberdeen, where he meets the Bible Johnny media circus head-on. Suddenly caught in the glare of the television cameras and in the middle of more than one investigation, Rebus must proceed wiht caution: One mistake could mean an unpleasant and not particularly speedy death, or, worse still, losing his job.Written with Ian Rankins signature wit, style and intricacy, Black and Blue is a novel of uncommon and unforgettable intrigue.
