"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.

Review:

Ian Rankin's now iconic Rebus series provides a better biography of modern Edinburgh over the past 25 years than almost anything else. -- Alex Heminsley * INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY * Rebus is back, in a novel long, meaty and persuasive enough to make up for the years of absence. -- Allan Massie * SPECTATOR * "For crime novel aficionados, this year's literary sensation is not 50 Shades of whatever or JK Rowling's non-magical foray into adult fiction. No, it is the return of one of the genre's finest characters; and what a welcome return it is. * SUNDAY EXPRESS * Rankin's dialogue flows so naturally that it's easy to dismiss his subtler gifts; no one captures the bleak grandeur of Scotland, or the mindset of those charged with upholding its law, in quite the same way. -- Christopher Fowler * FINANCIAL TIMES * Rankin's malcontent still makes for an irresistibly morose companion * i * A seasonal treat for crime fiction fans. * CHOICE * The prose is as ferocious as ever; the sense of place matchless; this is British crime-writing of the finest, lasting quality. -- Geoffry Wansell * DAILY MAIL * Gritty and hard-hitting, it's the work of a writer at the very top of his game. * SUNDAY MIRROR * Vintage Rebus * MORNING STAR * Vintage Rankin... [a] thoroughly absorbing, endlessly twisting tale. I was gripped from first page to last - and so will you be. * READER'S DIGEST * Rebus hasn't changed; he's as sharp, petty, curmudgeonly and likeable as ever. * IRISH SUNDAY INDEPENDENT * Rebus is back and the result is an outstanding whodunit, a book that should be read by anyone wanting to experience the very best of modern crime fiction. It is high praise indeed to suggest that this is the finest book Ian Rankin has ever written: but in our view it is. * UNDISCOVEREDSCOTLAND.COM * Now we know retirement has not withered Rebus -- Jake Kerridge * DAILY TELEGRAPH * Rankin draws us into a thematically rich plot that evolves into a meditation on morality and how best to asses a man's worth... Rebus is one of the most popular fictional characters of our generation. -- Declan Burke * IRISH TIMES * Rebus is without doubt one of the funniest among the classical fictional detectives, and his 19th case features some fine one-liners... STANDING IN ANOTHER MAN'S GRAVE is Rankin's most interesting book politically... Cheeringly, it seems clear from the final pages that there will be more Rebus books to chart the next stage in Scotland's story -- Mark Lawson * GUARDIAN * Rebus has returned... and it's a treat to welcome him back * TIMES * Ian Rankin's fiction is as reliable as it is successful, so this installment will thrill his many fans. * LITERARY REVIEW * Genius... Rankin once again proves himself to be the consummate master of crime. -- David Robinson * SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY * Rankin's malcontent still makes for an irresistably morose companion * i * A seasonal treat for crime fiction fans * CHOICE * Vintage Rebus * MORNING STAR * Vintage Rankin... [a] thoroughly absorbing, endlessly twisting tale. I was gripped from first page to last - and so will you be * READER'S DIGEST * Rebus is back and the result is an outstanding whodunit, a book that should be read by anyone wanting to experience the very best of modern crime fiction. It is high praise indeed to suggest that this is the finest book Ian Rankin has ever written: but in our view it is * UNDISCOVEREDSCOTLAND.COM * Now we know retirement has not withered Rebus -- Jake Kerridge * DAILY TELEGRAPH * An impeccably crafted whodunnit -- John Dugdale * SUNDAY TIMES * Ian Rankin's fiction is as reliable as it is successful, so this installment will thrill his many fans * LITERARY REVIEW * Genius... Rankin once again proves himself to be the consummate master of crime -- David Robinson * SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY * Rebus - and Rankin - are both on top form in this enjoyable detective novel * SUNDAY BUSINESS POST MAGAZINE * Thrilling, funny and intelligent, this is crime fiction at its best * CATHOLIC HERALD * Auld acquaintance is gleefully renewed when Rankin brings cantankerous John Rebus out of retirement in a civilian role for an Edinburgh cold case team - *9 * RUTLAND TIMES * For crime novel aficionados, this year's literary sensation is not 50 Shades of whatever or JK Rowling's non-magical foray into adult fiction. No, it is the return of one of the genre's finest characters; and what a welcome return it is. * SUNDAY EXPRESS * Rankin's dialogue flows so naturally that it's easy to dismiss his subtler gifts; no one captures the bleak grandeur of Scotland, or the mindset of those charged with upholding its law, in quite the same way. -- Christopher Fowler * FINANCIAL TIMES * Rebus is back, in a novel long, meaty and persuasive enough to make up for the years of absence. -- Allan Massie * SPECTATOR * Rebus hasn't changed; he's as sharp, petty, curmudgeonly and likeable as ever. * IRISH SUNDAY INDEPENDENT * Genius... Rankin once again proves himself to be the consummate master of crime. * SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY * Ian Rankin's now iconic Rebus series provides a better biography of modern Edinburgh over the past 25 years than almost anything else. * INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY * Gritty and hard-hitting, it's the work of a writer at the very top of his game. * SUNDAY MIRROR * Rankin draws us into a thematically rich plot that evolves into a meditation on morality and how best to asses a man's worth...

Cheeringly, it seems clear from the final pages that there will be more Rebus books to chart the next stage in Scotland's story. * GUARDIAN * The prose is as ferocious as ever; the sense of place matchless; this is British crime-writing of the finest, lasting quality. * DAILY MAIL * Needless to say, Rankin soon - once again - has the bit between his teeth. Rankin, as ever, does this better than most * GOOD BOOK GUIDE * Rebus has returned... and it's a treat to welcome him back * THE TIMES *
