Waterstones Says

Soaring above the mean streets of Edinburgh to an interstellar conspiracy involving doomed space shuttles and vanished satellites, this early Rankin classic is available for the first time in 25 years. A breathless international thriller very different to the hard-edged Tartan noir of Rebus, Westwind is ripe for rediscovery.

Signed Edition

In Europe, the Americans are pulling out their troops in a tide of isolationism.

Britain is torn between loyalties to 'the special relationship' and its continental cousins.

In America, a space shuttle crashes on landing, killing all but one of the crew: British astronaut Mike Dreyfuss.

Halfway across the world, Martin Hepton, an English ground control technician watches as they lose contact with the most advanced satellite on earth. A colleague of Hepton's who suspects something strange is going on is signed off sick, and never returns.

As Hepton investigates, his trail leads him to Dreyfuss, the MI6, the NSA, and back to Jill, his former girlfriend and now hotshot journalist.

But the bigger the secret, the more they will kill to keep it hidden...
