Knots & Crosses is the first book in the Inspector John Rebus series and I wasn´t prepared just how much of a messed up character Rebus is. He is full blown drama walking on two legs. He has family problems, he is estranged from his brother, he isn´t good at his job, he is clearly haunted by somethi...

This post is overdue, and I can't seem to find time to do it right. So, I won't. Here's a quick and dirty way to get it taken care of. I wish I had it in me to do a better job, but I don't. Here's the blurb taken from Rankin's site: Retirement doesn’t suit John Rebus. He wasn’t made for hobbies, hol...

Rebus said quietly. "It made sense that we stuck up for one another back then--might not be so true now.". . . ". . . secrets and lies and all the other crap we've dealt out and been dealt. I didn't see you owning up in there to singing your name to statements that weren't yours. But we both know it...

Rebus had lost count of the number of cases he’d worked, cases often as complex as this one, requiring interview after interview, statement after statement. He thought of the material in the boxes, now being pared over by those around him--paperwork generated in order to show effort rather than with...

Detective Paul Carter has been found guilty of some pretty clear-cut criminal activity. Fox and his team have been brought into investigate a neighboring force, Carter's own, to see who might have been involved with him -- or at the least covered up for him. They weren't involved with the original i...

I left the last Rankin book thinking, "If I didn't know that there were more Rebus books coming, I'd be really depressed." There are advantages to being this far behind a series. Thanks to a podcast interview I heard with Rankin around the time I started to plan my Rebus reading (I think it was this...

This mystery leaves me a bit cold. It's a bit interesting until it is not.

Before I get into this, last week my son was playing some EASports game -- FIFA something, I think. Anyway, I notice that he's playing Hiberian, and my first thought is, "Hey, that's Siobhan's team." That's a sign that I'm probably reading too many Rebus novels, right? Anyway, on with this post... ...

well..that's interesting. Granted, I'm not actually familiar with most of the authors...or characters. Not really the genre I follow. I do kinda wish similar existed in romance if only to see how other authors do characters.

“Know what I think? I think all of this is because there’s a bit of the anarchist in you. You're on their side, and it annoys you that you've somehow ended up working for The Man." Rebus snorted a laugh. “Where did you get that from?" She laughed with him. “I’m right though, aren’t I? You’ve alw...
