I have really gotten into British crime novels in the last couple of years and I seen a review of one of this authors books so I had to go and search out the first one which is Knots and Crosses. I found it on paperback swap! 🙂

Knots and Crosses

Detective John Rebus: His city is being terrorized by a baffling series of murders…and he’s tied to a maniac by an invisible knot of blood. Once John Rebus served in Britain’s elite SAS. Now he’s an Edinburgh cop who hides from his memories, misses promotions and ignores a series of crank letters. But as the ghoulish killings mount and the tabloid headlines scream, Rebus cannot stop the feverish shrieks from within his own mind. Because he isn’t just one cop trying to catch a killer, he’s the man who’s got all the pieces to the puzzle…

Taken from page 90-91 of the paperback version.

Inside his door, a letter, unstamped, awaited him. He swore out loud. The bastard was everywhere and yet invisible. He ripped open the letter and read.


But there was no signature, not in writing anyway. But inside the envelope, like some child’s plaything, lay the piece of knotted twine.

Rebus keeps getting these envelopes with weird sentences and some have knots and some have crosses in them.

      I am enjoying it. I haven’t read a lot of British crime novels but I love watching the mysteries on BBC or netflix. 🙂
