A new disease: gimme all your Rankin books

Oh yes. Before Finals it was solitaire and free cell on the laptop (I only passed because, with a supreme act of will, aided by a flash of insight at 4 a.m. after hours of said games and no revision, I deleted the files from the computer), there has been John Grisham, Pratchett. While still at school there was the cringe-as-you-read David Eddings.
Now, it's Ian Rankin. A good combination with McCall Smith. I am going through a patriotic patch.
The printer has just about finished the sample of Rankin's latest novel I got off the website, so I can at last go to the loo.
