    DescriptionMike Mackenzie is a self-made man with too much time on his hands and a bit of the devil in his soul. He is looking for something to liven up the days and settles on a plot to rip-off one of the most high-profile targets in the capital - the National Gallery of Scotland. So, together with two close friends from the art world, he devises a plan to lift some of the most valuable artwork around. But of course, the real trick is to rob the place for all its worth whilst persuading the world that no crime was ever committed...

    Review quote
    'Fast, slick and exciting' -- William Leith EVENING STANDARD 'Inspector Rebus is absent from Ian Rankin's latest thriller but Edinburgh is as important a character as ever. Rankin expertly portrays the gang's different personalities as the plot thickens and darkens' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH 'The unravelling of the plan shows the author at his best: while the trio's motives for risking jail sometimes stretch credulity, the inexorable growth of mistrust within the gang is expertly and convincingly traced' -- John Dugdale SUNDAY TIMES 'This is Rankin's first stand-alone thriller for more than a decade. When two friends devise a plan to steal some of the world's most valuable artwork, their only option is to make it look like no crime has been committed' EDINBURGH EVE NEWS 'Fast, slick and exciting' LONDON LITE 'This is not Rebus, but it's fast, slick and exciting' THE SCOTSMAN
