We present two stories:
'Concrete Evidence': A skeleton is found in the concrete cellar floor of an old Edinburgh house. Whose skeleton is it? Was there a murder? Why? And who was the murderer? Rebus has his suspicions, but before he can positively identify the dead man and his murderer, he needs concrete evidence.
'The Gentlemen's Club': Seventeen-year-old Suzanne McKinzie was good at school, had rich parents and no boyfriend problems. So why should she kill herself? And why did she want her father to be the one to find her dead that morning?
