I’ve just started reading Ian Rankin’s latest Rebus book – Saints of the Shadow Bible. It arrived on my Kindle this morning and I had to have a look at it straight away and then of course I couldn’t stop reading. I’ve now read 22% and am totally gripped. Rebus is back on the force, now a DS and about to cross swords with DI Malcom Fox.
It’s not often that I start to read a book as soon as I’ve bought it. I’ve always got other books on the go and plenty more waiting to be read. So I ‘shouldn’t‘ really be reading it yet as I’m part way into Gone With The Wind – nearly halfway! – and it’s very good. And I’m also reading Julius by Daphne du Maurier, also good.
But I can’t help myself and so I am reading Saints of the Shadow Bible, trying to make it last as long as possible and reading it slowly paying attention to all the details, but the pace and the characters are drawing me along so quickly. I don’t really want to finish it today!!!
