In a House of Lies – Book Review



This is the 22nd in the Rebus series and Rebus is ill, he has COPD (emphysema) and is retired,

A body is found in the boot of an abandoned car and it has clearly been there a long time.

DI John Rebus turns up to assist, as he feels he knows who it is. He is working with his friend, Siobhan Clarke and Malcolm Fox.

This has the same atmosphere and pace of other Rebus novels but. Felt this was more of a police procedural about corruption within a Police force and less about the actual crime itself. While it’s still a good read, it felt like the winding down of Rebus and didn’t engage me as much.

I would like to thank the Author/the Publishers/NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for a fair and honest review
