Publisher's Summary

Winner of the 2013 Audible Sounds of Crime Award
Its 25 years since John Rebus appeared on the scene, and 5 years since he retired. But 2012 sees his return in Standing in Another Man’s Grave. Not only is Rebus as stubborn and anarchic as ever, but he finds himself in trouble with Rankin's latest creation, Malcolm Fox of Edinburgh's internal affairs unit. Added to which, Rebus may be about to derail the career of his ex-colleague Siobhan Clarke, while himself being permanently derailed by mob boss and old adversary Big Ger Cafferty. But all Rebus wants to do is discover the truth about a series of seemingly unconnected disappearances stretching back to the millennium.
The problem being, no one else wants to go there - and that includes Rebus's fellow officers. Not that any of that is going to stop Rebus. Not even when his own life and the careers of those around him are on the line.
James MacPherson played DCI Jardine in Taggart for 16 years, and has acted on stage in plays as diverse as The Taming of the Shrew and ART by Yasmina Reza. He has presented a regular books programme for Radio Scotland - for which he has interviewed Ian Rankin. He won a Spoken Word Gold Award for his reading of
Strip Jack, a Crimefest Audible UK Sounds of Crime Award for Doors Open and has narrated all the Ian Rankin Rebus books. James lives in Glasgow.

Yawn yawn

If this book were Christmas hamper it would be 95% packaging and 5% content. The author seems mostly focused on what people are 1. Eating 2. Drinking 3. Thinking to themselves. None of which has anything to do with the plot. It takes far too long to get to the end and when you do it is a big disappoint. Sorry Ian: you must do better next time.

Great - In Parts!

Great to see Rebus back. Was really looking forward to this one. Didn't quite live up to my expectations. Same old cantankerous Rebus and the author has great fun with the character as usual. Great plot too but, for me, the key connections identifying the baddie were less than convincing and spoiled the storyline a little.
