Detective John Rebus: His city is being terrorized by a baffling series of murders...and he's tied to a maniac by an invisible knot of blood. Once John Rebus served in Britain's elite SAS. Now he's an Edinburgh cop who hides from his memories, misses promotions and ignores a series of crank letters. But as the ghoulish killings mount and the tabloid headlines scream, Rebus cannot stop the feverish shrieks from within his own mind. Because he isn't just one cop trying to catch a killer, he's the man who's got all the pieces to the puzzle... Knots and Crosses introduces a gifted mystery novelist, a fascinating locale and the most compellingly complex detective hero at work today.

After 21 novels and...

2.5 "Knots and Crosses - Rebus #1" by Ian Rankin - perhaps it had more impact back in 1987?
"Knots and Crosses" ended up on my TBR pile because I saw Ian Rankin being interviewed about the release of "Even Dogs In The Wild", the twentieth Rebus book. He sounded like an interesting guy, I'd enjoyed seeing John Hannah in the TV version of Rebus back in 2000, so I thought I'd go back to the s...

5.0 Knots and Crosses

"He drove quietly, hating to be back here in Fife, back where the old days had never been "good old days," where ghosts rustled in the shells of empty houses and the shutters went up every ...
