    Ian Rankin always writes good books and Standing in Another Man s Grave is possibly one of his best John Rebus was retired from the Force at the end of the last book and in this one he is back in a kind of honorary role He is still in top form, just as difficult as ever, just as determined to do things his own way He is also very smart and very well connected with both ex cops and ex criminals from his long history as a police officer All these things keep him one step ahead of every one else and able to break the case first.Rankin writes beautifully about Scotland and his descriptions are never superfluous or boring His characters are all well written and his dialogue realistic and frequently funny Rebus himself has a very dry wit and a ver...

    Peter Robinson once told me that the superlative Ian Rankin would not let Inspector Rebus just fade away Seems Mr Robinson called it correctly What a treat to have Rebus back again Nov 6th.Finally done Thankfully, those 2 words do not apply to John Rebus.He s back and with all his idiosyncratic,...

    Standing in Another Man s Grave Inspector Rebus, 18 by Ian Rankin.Let me start this review by thanking the author for finding life in retirement for Rebus His continuation of this marvelous Detective series is much appreciated by this reader.Rebus has retired BUT is continuing on the force at his old stomping grounds as a civilian in the cold case files A mispers is brought to his Rebus s attention by a mother searching for her missing daughteryears missing One missing girl leads to another and another Siobhan Clarke is with Rebus and is up for a big promotionif all goes well Being with Rebus usually means nothing goes well and that s just the beginning Rebus has also decided to rejoin the force and has his application on the dining room table Fate may have another idea for Rebus that may take him in a role he has never played before There are no...

    Well, maybe if I say fuck a lot in this review won t seize it and lead it to an evil digital dungeonwait, I say fuck all the time anyway.A very enjoyable way to kill an afternoon Not a good entry point for anyone not familiar with the series, but hell, it s the eighteenth book For the rest of us, it s a nice installment Rankin, never very good with female characters, serves us up a weepy stalker in this one I was hoping Rebus would drown her in a bucket of her own tears, but I hoped in vain The book earns a major DING and DING again from me for making Siobhan and a high ranking female colleague have a bad case of the Stupids, i.e they re Not Rebus This is why people call me a bitch feminist Then again, to be fair to Rankin, everyone in a series like this is Stupid because they re Not Rebus, so Major bonus points for Rebus just being Rebus The murder and indeed the motive are really glossed over, and the romanticization of the Scottish Thugs 4 Lyf continues, but it s awesome to see Rebus just being Rebus again, which is sometimes all you want in a series Some dude named Fox whom I also wanted to drown in a bucket apparently visits from a less successful series Rankin is trying to launch, but fortunately only for four five chapters total Remember the Bond movie where Judi Dench dressed down which one was it then, Timothy Dalton at the beginning and then he went on Bonding his way all over th...

    At the end of Exit Music in 2008, Ian Rankin was forced to retire his cantankerous Scottish detective, John Rebus, because Rebus had hit sixty, which is or was the mandatory retirement age for detectives in Scotland Happily, Rebus now returns, albeit as a civilian assisting a cold case squad rather than as a full fledged detective.After writing a couple of novels featuring Malcolm Fox, who is in the Complaints or Internal Affairs Division and who is as sober and straight laced as Rebus is not, Rankin discovered that there was a small unit in Edinburgh comprised of three retired detectives led by one active detective who looked into cold cases.Rebus is now assigned to the unit and is visited by a woman named Nina Hazlitt Ten years earlier, her daughter, Sally, had disappeared, but Nina has not been able to get anyone to revive the case Rebus agrees to look at it and in digging through the musty files, discovers that a number of other young women have disappeared in much the same way from virtually the same location Now another girl has gone missing and Rebus believes that he s looking at the actions of a single serial killer.Rebus manages to work his way into the current investigation, which also involves his...

    Clarke looked at him again When was the last time you actually left the city for pleasure, I mean He gave a casual shrug as she continued to study him, this time taking in his clothes James likes the officers under him to be presentable You might be under him from time to time, but not me In Standing in Another Man s Grave Rebus is semi retired and working cold cases with the SCRU, but hopes to return to CID with Lothian and Borders Police now that the retirement age has been raised By chance he is there when Nina Hazlitt arrives from London wanting to speak to the unit s founder, Gregor Magrath, now retired Hazlitt s daughter Sally went missing during millennium celebrations at Avie, not far from the A9, and Nina has been watching other cases of MisPer women disappearing along the same route over the years The latest case is of Edinburgh teenager Annette McKie, which is being investigated by Rebus former prot g , DI Siobhan Clarke with assistance from computer whiz DC Christine Esson, the team headed by the suave DCI James Page.Rebus is co opted to the CID investigation, even though evidence linking the MisPer cases is thin, and revolves around a photo taken on McKie s cell phone an...

    Rebus is back proclaimed the cover of this novel It was a major victory for Rebus to return into our lives after a hiatus Rebus is back in a civilian capacity working with the cold case unit in Edinburgh A mother approached him to look for her daughter who vanished years ago Rebus looks into moldy old files and find several women who vanished in that area Pushin...

    The crime genre is filled with the drunken derelict You all know the cv, he s a loner does not play well with others, making enemies Usually he gets a long better with the people he is trying to put in prison But he is not corrupt, no he s the knight errant of the mean streets, the slightly bent but strong moral compass He will have a string of ex wives and girl friends, he s not sexist, will get a leg over when ever possible, but it seems he relates better to the dead than the living And there is always a poison, usually drink, they are always alcohol sodden But is when drunk they will get the result, with a whole of detritus in their wake.I have described about half the main characters of crime fiction Dave Robicheaux, Harry Hole, Harry Bosch, Joe Cashin, team of Kenzie and Gennaro Anyone from a James Elroy novel, John Rebus, Gene Hunt, and of course the Granddaddy Philip Marlowe, and the great granddaddy Sherlock Holmes though he preferred opium So why do I keep going back to these characters...

    Rebus is back.I never realised how much I missed him until I read this book I never realised how much I missed the writing skills of Ian Rankin writing about Rebus Now I do Rebus is working on cold cases, as a civilian What else would he do after he reached the obligatory retirement age I wasn t sure if he was alive after Exit Music He is, along with his arch enemy, Cafferty, whose life he saved Rebus stumbles across a series of missing person cases which he links together in spite of himself When another young girl goes missing he finds himself in the centre of a murder investigation He has to cope with a new generation of detectives and a strange digital world which changes everything, except for the crimes that men have always committed Siobhan Clarke is now a DI and she is on his side Rebus also has Rankin s other creation from The Complaints, Malcolm Fox, waiting for him to make a mistake Rankin is a brilliant storytell...
