"It could be nothing more than a ruthless and enterprising pub owner looking to create a local legend that will help lure trade.

The missing girl is a friend of Inspector rebus's colleague Detective Siobhan Clarke, and Siobhan is shocked to find herself in the same intricate web of murderers as Rebus - all somehow tied to that pile of bones under Fleshmarket Alley." "In a race to stop the killings before more bodies turn up - even as the possibility of romantic entanglements distracts and entices them - rebus and Siobhan plumb the darkest corners of their beloved city and confront the lawless, conscienceless men who dwell there."--Jacket
