For all Rebus Fans

Ian Rankin has written another Rebus book, which he told the folk at the Hay Festival

It will be out later this year and is called Standing in Another Mans Grave

He felt there were issues left unanswered

That's good news.
I've felt that his post-Rebus books just haven't been as convincing.

RE: For all REBUS Fans

I am so lucky that I have only read a few of the old ones yet. I love them, but I think it takes time to read and enjoy a Rebus story so I have several lined up on my shelf.

I have even used examples of RankinĀ“s language in one of my classes. Of course my Danish students cannot figure out the difference between lie and lay so I showed them several other terms from RankinĀ“s rich vocabulary. Just one example I recall, "he pocketed the tape". Smile

RE: For all REBUS Fans

Well that's good news. I've read a few but by no means all of his previous Rebus books and I've always meant to read them all from book one. Having been born & brought up only 14 miles from Edinburgh and with it being my late teenage stamping ground a lot of the locations in the books are very familiar ...... even the pubs.

RE: For all Rebus Fans

Evening,

I saw this on the BBC website today and was thrilled. I'm something of a Rebus obsessive and I've been lucky enough to meet Ian Rankin in the flesh and he signed a book for me. II was dubious about the Malcolm Fox series but couldnt help but be drawn in. As I understand it, the new book is in fact a Malcolm Fox book which will feature Rebus. Give that the two are purposely opposite it should be a volatile story and I can't wait.
