Item description for Black & Blue (Negra (Rba Libros)) by Ian Rankin...
"Bible John" terrorized Glasgow in the sixties and seventies, murdering three women and he was never caught. Now a copycat, "Bible Johnny", is a new menace with violent ambitions. This new case would be perfect for Inspector John Rebus, but after a run-in with a crooked senior officer, he's been shunted aside to one of Edinburgh's toughest suburbs, where he investigates the murder of an off-duty oilman. His investigation takes him north to the oilrigs of Aberdeen, where he meets the "Bible Johnny" media circus head-on. Suddenly caught in the glare of the television cameras and in the middle of more than one investigation, Rebus must proceed with caution: One mistake could mean an unpleasant and not particularly speedy death, or, worse still, losing his job.
