Hide & Seek is the second novel about the adventures of John Rebus. It sees Rebus investigating an apparent drug overdose, and then becoming embroiled in a sinister plot involving corruption.

Synopsis Edit

A junkie lies dead in an Edinburgh flat - spreadeagled, cross-like on the floor between two burned-down candles, a five-pointed star daubed on the wall above. Just another dead addict, until John Rebus begins to chip away at the indifference, treachery, deceit and sleaze that lurks beneath the facade of the Edinburgh familiar to the tourists. Only Rebus seems to care about a death which looks more like murder every day, about a seductive danger he can almost taste, appealing to the darkest corners of his mind.
