Publisher's Summary

Inspector John Rebus has messed up badly this time, so badly that he is sent to a reform school for damaged cops. While there, among the last-chancers known as "resurrection men", he joins a covert mission to gain evidence of a drug heist orchestrated by three of his classmates.

But the group has been assigned an unsolved murder that may have resulted from Rebus's own mistake. Now Rebus can't determine if he's been set up for a fall or if his disgraced classmates are as ruthless as he suspects.

When Detective Sergeant Siobhan Clarke discovers her investigation of an art dealer's murder is tied to Rebus's inquiry, the two join forces. Soon they find themselves in the midst of an even bigger scandal than they imagined - a plot with conspirators in every corner of Scotland and deadly implications about their colleagues.

Crack another case with Inspector Rebus.

What the Critics Say

  • Edgar Award, Best Mystery, 2004

"A solid police procedural whose protagonist, the hero of 14 other titles in this internationally acclaimed series, continues to grow on readers who are just discovering him." (Amazon.com)

"The clever, funny, perfectly pitched dialogue develops the characters and moves the story....Resurrection Men is what good crime fiction should be - a puzzle that challenges the eye, but worth the effort of putting all the pieces in place." (Philadelphia Inquirer)

    "Terrific value for the best of Inspector Rebus"

    Resurrection Men is one of the best of the Inspector Rebus stories. More convoluted than some of the others, it does require close attention, preferably not while driving. The narrator does an excellent job of differentiating the large cast of characters and can actually pronounce Irn Bru correctly. However, Scots may be annoyed by a tendency for Scottish characters to break into English vowels occasionally and Rebus sounds far too Edinburgh genteel if you have always thought of him as using the broad Scots of author Ian Rankin. Terrific value.

    "not great"

    This was a difficult book to get through. The brogue was hard to understand and the characters fuzzy. I made it to the end and it was OK, but the worst book ive listened to so far.
