Friends this is my review of the book Bleeding Hearts by Ian Rankin, which I read recently. The observant will notice that this is book 52, and it is week 39. It has taken me slightly longer this time to get to through the books, as I have been very busy over the last few months, and not really had much time to read.
Still that is enough of me and back to the book. This book was written a few years ago by Ian, and I am sorry to say has been sitting on my bookshelf unread until now.It is another story about an assassin, but here the twist is that not only are the police and private detectives trying to find the assassin, but the assassin himself is trying to find out who has employed him, as someone phoned the police telling them that the assassination attempt would take place.
The question is who will find their quarry first. It is an exciting story, with a believable plot line, that moves from Scotland to America. It picks up a secretive new age cult and some branch of the American secret service along the way.
There is a very amusing part with a road blockage and a caravan on the narrow Scottish roads. Our heroes solution of sorting the matter with a gun, certainly offers and original solution to being held up.
So this was a good book to end my run of reading 52 books on, which covered 39 weeks. 48 of the books were fiction, and 4 non fiction. I wonder how long it will take me to read my next 52 books.
