Standing In Another Man’s Grave
Yes, Rebus is back…now a retired inspector with diminished authority. He is older, as Rankin ages his characters in real time and the health warnings from his doctor are increasing. But still restless and looking for trouble.
Change and dislocation repeat throughout the book as Rebus obsessively travels the highways of Scotland in his ancient Saab, and Scotland itself is fracturing over the looming vote for independence.
For fans of Rankin, the most interesting moments in Standing In Another Man’s Grave are those chapters where John Rebus is pitted against Malcolm Fox, who is Rankin’s new literary creation. You will have to read the book to find out who comes off best.
