Ver­dict: Rec­tos of Knots and crosses cer­tainly couldn’t knot me up un­til the last lap. I felt the pages were over­flow­ing with the emo­tions and thoughts of a messed up DS. Re­bus has been char­ac­ter­ized to be ex­tremely dif­fer­ent from the de­tec­tives we are adapted to. A squiz at Rankin’s work and we would re­al­ize that Re­bus is noth­ing but ex­tremely hu­mane. No su­per senses of find­ing ab­stract or ob­scure clues. Even so, the sto­ry­line and its good pre­sen­ta­tion style are ap­pre­cia­ble and I would give it a 3.8/5, with an over­all rat­ing of 3.5/5. Though “There are clues ev­ery­where”, “there were no clues worth go­ing on” - Yes, I per­son­ally missed get­ting sucked into the world of de­tec­tives, try­ing to solve the case along with the pro­tag­o­nist. Knots and Crosses can be la­beled as one of those thin, quick reads. I wouldn’t par it with my fa­vorites, but it cer­tainly prick­led my in­ter­est to get more of Re­bus series. An en­gi­neer by pro­fes­sion, Meera is deeply pas­sion­ate about blog­ging, art, and pho­tog­ra­phy. Her fo­cus is mainly on trav­el­ogues. Be­ing a folk­lorist in mak­ing, she goes about with a pur­pose of doc­u­ment­ing var­i­ous cul­tures. She is also an avid reader who en­joys the com­pany of good crime/mys­tery nov­els.
