Standing in Another Man's Grave

By Ian Rankin (Trade Paperback, 2013)
"Thrilling...Rebus returns-and welcome." (Kirkus Reviews)

For more than ten years, Nina Hazlitt feared the worst about her daughter's disappearance. The police investigation ground to a halt long ago, and her pleas to the cold case department go unheard. Until she meets the newest member of the team: former Detective John Rebus.

Two more women have gone missing from the same road where Sally Hazlitt was last seen, and Rebus senses a connection. But pursuing it leads him into the crosshairs of adversaries both old and new.

Rebus may have missed the thrill of the hunt, but he's up against a powerful enemy who's got even less to lose. STANDING IN ANOTHER MAN'S GRAVE is the triumphant return of John Rebus and a riveting story of sin, redemption, and revenge.

  • PRAISE FOR THE COMPLAINTS:

    "Rankin is a master at what, for me, is one of the important aspects of a crime novel: the integration of setting, plot, characters and a theme which, for Rankin, is the moral dimension never far from his writing. . . . Fox is so fully realised and interesting a character, his job in "the complaints" so fraught with fascinating possibilities, that we can surely hope to meet him again."
    (P.D. James, The Guardian).

  • "Fans of Rankin's cherished Inspector Rebus have a new character to love: the circumspect Edinburgh cop Malcolm Fox...No bells and whistles here, just the satisfaction of a finely crafted story. A-" (Tina Jordan, Entertainment Weekly).

  • "Complex and compelling, a plot masterfully spun by the prolific Ian Rankin, who matches the elements that have marked the novels of his successful Inspector Rebus series...The Complaints is part mystery, part buddy story, part morality essay.  Mr. Rankin never lets the reader down for a single page." (Robert Croan, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette).
