about

Ein illegaler Einwanderer wird ermordet in einer Edinburgher Sozialsiedlung gefunden – ein Mord mit rassistischem Hintergrund oder etwas ganz anderes? Die Spuren führen Inspector Rebus von der berüchtigten Sozialsiedlung Knoxland geradewegs in die Tiefen der Edinburgher Unterwelt. Unterdessen kümmert sich Siobhan Clarke um den Fall eines verschwundenen Mädchens, und auch sie taucht bei ihren Ermittlungen ein in die dunkelsten Ecken Edinburghs, in das berüchtigte »Schamdreieck«. Was zunächst wie purer Zufall erscheint, erweist sich allmählich als logischer Zusammenhang. Denn hier, in den zwielichtigen Kneipen und Bars, halten ein paar Männer alle Fäden in der Hand, zu deren Geschäften auch Menschenhandel im großen Stil zählt. Und die es gar nicht gerne sehen, wenn Rebus und Siobhan Clarke ihre Kreise stören …

Als bester Spannungsroman des Jahres mit dem British Book Award ausgezeichnet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great mindless myster Every now and then I like to interrupt my usual literary druthers with a nice mindless mystery/thriller.  I find I have been discontent with the books I have been reading lately and needed something light and good to recharge. So I drafted Ian Rankin novelist-distractionaire for this task, and Rankin’s Fleshmarket Close did just that. Carrying on his Detective Rebus series, Rankin begins his story with a man found stabbed in a dodgy area of Edinburgh.  The victim, a refugee with several stab wounds, is thought by the police to be the result of a racially-motivated crime.  And so tells the murder-solving story that weaves several different crimes that all take place over a week. Rankin is a great storyteller and bravely takes on the touchy subject of race relations. He exposes the harsh realities faced by refugees and asylum-seekers, and depicts their attempts to start new lives in a better country only to find themselves poor, desolate, and the subject of hate crimes. Rankin’s readers know that sometimes his stories wrap everything up together all too nicely, but that’s easy to get over considering you’ve devoured page after page because he’s kept you entertained.  The great thing about Rankin’s novels is they don’t subject the reader to procedural dribble; rather he makes his novels interesting, funny, and with a healthy dose of police work that makes you hang on for more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Book This is the first book that I have read in a very long time. Fleshmarket Close is a detective story that takes place in Edinburgh, Scotland. This book is about a detective trying to solve a murder of an immigrant in a place where the government has shipped all immigrants. The murder is made to look like a hate crime to take the police away from the real crime of people smuggling for prostitution. I found the plot very interesting. The topics were the hardships that immigrants go through, people smuggling and a family that has to deal with a daughter who was raped and committed suicide. The family tries to turn their living daughter into the daughter that committed suicide. This book would be very interesting to anyone who enjoys a good detective novel. The whole plot kept me very interested and left me wanting more.
