    Short Description for Standing in Another Man's Grave A series of seemingly random disappearances - stretching back to the millennium. A mother determined to find the truth. A retired cop desperate to get his old life back...It's been some time since Rebus was forced to retire, and he now works as a civilian in a cold-case unit. So when a long-dead case bursts back to life, he can't resist the opportunity to get his feet under the CID desk once more. But Rebus is as stubborn and anarchic as ever, and he quickly finds himself in deep with pretty much everyone, including DI Siobhan Clarke. All Rebus wants to do is uncover the truth.

    Review quote
    Rebus has returned... and it's a treat to welcome him back THE TIMES Needless to say, Rankin soon - once again - has the bit between his teeth. Rankin, as ever, does this better than most GOOD BOOK GUIDE The prose is as ferocious as ever; the sense of place matchless; this is British crime-writing of the finest, lasting quality. DAILY MAIL Rebus is without doubt one of the funniest among the classical fictional detectives, and his 19th case features some fine one-liners... STANDING IN ANOTHER MAN'S GRAVE is Rankin's most interesting book politically... Cheeringly, it seems clear from the final pages that there will be more Rebus books to chart the next stage in Scotland's story. GUARDIAN Rankin draws us into a thematically rich plot that evolves into a meditation on morality and how best to asses a man's worth... Rebus is one of the most popular fictional characters of our generation. IRISH TIMES Gritty and hard-hitting, it's the work of a writer at the very top of his game. SUNDAY MIRROR Ian Rankin's now iconic Rebus series provides a better biography of modern Edinburgh over the past 25 years than almost anything else. INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY Genius... Rankin once again proves himself to be the consummate master of crime. SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY Rebus hasn't changed; he's as sharp, petty, curmudgeonly and likeable as ever. IRISH SUNDAY INDEPENDENT Rebus is back, in a novel long, meaty and persuasive enough to make up for the years of absence. -- Allan Massie SPECTATOR Rankin's dialogue flows so naturally that it's easy to dismiss his subtler gifts; no one captures the bleak grandeur of Scotland, or the mindset of those charged with upholding its law, in quite the same way. -- Christopher Fowler FINANCIAL TIMES For crime novel aficionados, this year's literary sensation is not 50 Shades of whatever or JK Rowling's non-magical foray into adult fiction. No, it is the return of one of the genre's finest characters; and what a welcome return it is. SUNDAY EXPRESS Auld acquaintance is gleefully renewed when Rankin brings cantankerous John Rebus out of retirement in a civilian role for an Edinburgh cold case team - *9 RUTLAND TIMES Thrilling, funny and intelligent, this is crime fiction at its best CATHOLIC HERALD Rebus - and Rankin - are both on top form in this enjoyable detective novel SUNDAY BUSINESS POST MAGAZINE Genius... Rankin once again proves himself to be the consummate master of crime -- David Robinson SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY Ian Rankin's fiction is as reliable as it is successful, so this installment will thrill his many fans LITERARY REVIEW An impeccably crafted whodunnit -- John Dugdale SUNDAY TIMES Now we know retirement has not withered Rebus -- Jake Kerridge DAILY TELEGRAPH Rebus is back and the result is an outstanding whodunit, a book that should be read by anyone wanting to experience the very best of modern crime fiction. It is high praise indeed to suggest that this is the finest book Ian Rankin has ever written: but in our view it is UNDISCOVEREDSCOTLAND.COM Vintage Rankin... [a] thoroughly absorbing, endlessly twisting tale. I was gripped from first page to last - and so will you be READER'S DIGEST Vintage Rebus MORNING STAR A seasonal treat for crime fiction fans CHOICE Rankin's malcontent still makes for an irresistably morose companion i
