Ian Rankin - Sötét jelen
John Rebus felügyelő ezúttal egyszerre négy különböző üggyel zsonglőrködik. Az egyik shetlandi olajfúrótorony munkása, Allan Mitchison gyanús körülmények között meghal Edinburghban. A szálak Glasgow-n keresztül Aberdeenbe és onnan - természetesen - az olajiparhoz, a fúrótornyok különös, törvényen kívüli világába vezetnek. A nyomozás során Rebus megismerkedik a glasgow-i alvilág hírhedt keresztapjával, Joe bácsival, és hamarosan világossá válik előtte, hogy az aberdeeni droghálózatot valahonnan kívülről, talán éppen Glasgowból működtetik... Mindeközben hatalmas erővel folyik a nyomozás a Bibliás Johnny-ügyben: egy rettegett kéjgyilkos már három fiatal nőt gyilkolt meg. Ebben a nyomozásban ugyan Rebus hivatalosan nem vesz részt, ám mégis igen élénken foglalkoztatja az ügy, ugyanis éppen akkor került a testület kötelékébe, vagy negyedszázaddal korábban, amikor Bibliás John, a mostani sorozatgyilkos "spirituális édesapja" tartotta rettegésben Skóciát. Rebus nem tud szabadulni attól az érzéstől, hogy Bibliás John megint ott ólálkodik a közelben: az sem kizárt, hogy "újjászületett", és valójában ő a felelős az áldozatok haláláért, ám sokkal valószínűbb, hogy - a rendőrséghez hasonlóan - ő is Bibliás Johnnyra vadászik, mert az "utód" megjelenése felbosszantotta, és nem tűrheti, hogy valaki elbitorolja tőle a dicsőséget... És ha még mindez nem lenne elég, a múlt árnyai minden eddiginél fenyegetőbben és valóságosabban jelennek meg a felügyelő életében: egy régi, már jó ideje lezárt, ám annál ellentmondásosabb ügy, amiben annak idején Rebus is tevékenyen részt vett, ismét felkelti a média érdeklődését, aminek hatására a sajtótól rettegő rendőrségi vezetők belső vizsgálatot rendelnek el. Amit éppen az a rendőrtiszt vezet, akit Rebus azzal vádolt meg korábban, hogy glasgow-i maffia fizetett embere...
