Review quote

'Here DI John Rebus investigates why someone wants to strip MP Gregor Jack of everything that matters to him - and be warned, this one you'll want to stay in the car for until it ends.' -- Kati Nicholl Sunday Express 'DI Rebus isn't convinced by a Scottish MP's story. A twist-in-the-tale tape-turner, one of Rankin's best, brilliantly read by James Macpherson.' CHOICE 'won a gold medal in the crime category at this year's Spoken Words awards. Bliss' The Irish Times 'James MacPherson's readins of Ian Rankin's novels deserve a special place in the audio-thrillers' hall of fame. He takes us straight into the back of DC Rebus's head, and makes us loth to leave it. STRIP JACK is a juicily long abridgement, which allows plenty of time for us to get to know a gallery of possible suspects for the murder of an MP's wife who has an inconvenient liking for perverted sexual horseplay.' -- Christina Hardyment THE INDEPENDENT MAGAZINEshow more
