In this original short story from the New York Times bestselling thriller anthology FaceOff, internationally bestselling authors Ian Rankin and Peter James - along with their most famous characters, John Rebus and Roy Grace - team up for the first time ever.

Detectives John Rebus and Roy Grace could not be more different. Different generations, different backgrounds, and not to mention the fact that they work 500 miles apart.

The case that eventually brings them together centres on a crime that happened when Rebus was just a teenager in the 1960s - but it took place in Roy Grace's stomping grounds in Brighton, England, at a time when violence erupted between rival gangs known as Mods and Rockers.

Now, a deathbed confession in in Edinburgh brings Rebus and Grace together to investigate a cold case with a shocking twist.
