Having been promoted, there was a realistic learning curve of putting officers to work and being friendly with them. Rankin has provided little in the way of descriptions of dogged police work and the pursuit of clues and has focused on dialogue and character development almost to the exclusion of everything else.

Although I stopped myself from watching a Finnish documentary without subtitle still instant looking up disturbed my flow of reading a lot. In the Exile on Princes Street foreword to Rebus: The Early Years, Rankin says this was his second attempt at updating Robert Louis Stevenson's Dr. I confirm that I have read this Important Notice regarding Condition Reports and agree to its terms.

Good to hear you’re enjoying my book reviews as they are my least read posts by some considerable distance!Just another dead addict – until John Rebus begins to chip away at the indifference, treachery, deceit and sleaze that lurks behind the facade of the Edinburgh familiar to tourists. I have a big complaint about Ian Rankin’s early Rebus novels, and it is a complaint that continues to taint my enjoyment of the series.

I understand that there is a difference, and I apologize to anyone who may be triggered by this topic. Rebus just has a feel about the scene of death and decides to sniff around a bit more than would normally seem necessary in a case seemingly as cut and dried as this. Just another dead addict, until John Rebus begins to chip away at the indifference, treachery, deceit and sleaze that lurk beneath the facade of the Edinburgh familiar to tourists.Early on in the book his suspicion that a drug overdose could be murder and his determination to resolve it one way or another leads him down a very interesting path to the end.

Candles surround the corpse and the crude pentagram on the wall is so fresh that the paint is still tacky. Octavo, original red textured paper over boards, gilt lettering on spine, color illustrated dust jacket. There's not much of Rebus' personal life here: wife and daughter are out of the picture, he has split up from Gill Templer (though there are still some feelings there), his brother has been packed off to jail, and there isn't that much interaction with his colleagues beyond Holmes (whom he is only just getting to know) and Watson. Important only because of the series as a whole it's a book for the completist or the real fan as there are better books later in the series. Withdrawn Ex-Library, replacement plain binding~~Fair/Quite Good 1st ed 1991 hardback, unclipped jacket in sleeve taped to boards.Only Detective Inspector John Rebus senses something evil, something too dangerous to ignore that has to be investigated and brought up into the light. Rebus takes seriously a death which looks more like a murder every day, and he begins to investigate the true circumstances of the death. The DJ in mylar has a 3" closed tear along gutter and across spine at crown, scrape and chip to heel.

I found it hard to keep track of who did what and why (I’m still not sure who put the rat poison in the heroine, or whether it was even fully disclosed). From a beautiful city's darkest side to the private sanctums of the upper crust, Rebus is seeking the perfect hiding place for a killer, in Hide and Seek , the second novel in the series from Ian Rankin. Meanwhile, Tracy reports that she's being followed, and Rebus notices that he's being followed as well.

Rankin creates a wonderful sense of the great and good in a picturesque Edinburgh which is home to a much darker side.Ronnie's death, seemingly by his own hand, was the beginning of a complex case where things most definitely were not what they seemed. I also think of Rebus as fairly similar to Harry Bosch, Michael Connelly's famous LA detective - they share a lot of personal and professional traits. Some side plots in the story involve illegal dog fights, a gay character, and Rebus's ex-lover - Gillian Templer - who has a new radio DJ boyfriend.
