A pharmaceutical factory appears to be the major supply source of cocaine over which a gun battle is being planned by the upstart gang leader and his group of thugs. Rebus' old friend and workmate, DI Jack Morton is on an undercover assignment at the drugs plant when the attack is made, and he receives fatal gunshot wounds.

An excellent plot with many twists and turns.
21 April 2001 | by (Victoria, Australia) – See all my reviews

Once again, Inspector Rebus (John Hannah) is embroiled in a thrilling plot with more who done it twists and turns than an Agatha Christie thriller. Set in Edinburgh, this series would hardly be used by the Edinburgh tourist board to promote the city as a sunny gateway to "Shining Scotland". It portrays the underside of Edinburgh in stereo-typical Scottish gritty, dankness. A strong supporting cast provide solid and convincing portrayals of characters on both sides of the law whom you would find anywhere either side of the Atlantic. Or for that matter, on the streets of Melbourne. The main strength of the Rebus series is in it's portrayal of the fact that the fine line that separates the law enforcers from the criminals is extremely grey indeed. Whilst not corrupt at heart, Rebus with his offsider, DI Jack Morton (Ewan Stewart) enforce their own code of justice on the criminals to keep the streets of Edinburgh at least respectable on the surface.
