Publisher's Summary

Its 25 years since John Rebus appeared on the scene, and 5 years since he retired. But 2012 sees his return in Standing in Another Man’s Grave. Not only is Rebus as stubborn and anarchic as ever, but he finds himself in trouble with Rankin's latest creation, Malcolm Fox of Edinburgh's internal affairs unit. Added to which, Rebus may be about to derail the career of his ex-colleague Siobhan Clarke, while himself being permanently derailed by mob boss and old adversary Big Ger Cafferty. But all Rebus wants to do is discover the truth about a series of seemingly unconnected disappearances stretching back to the millennium.

The problem being, no one else wants to go there - and that includes Rebus's fellow officers. Not that any of that is going to stop Rebus. Not even when his own life and the careers of those around him are on the line.

James MacPherson played DCI Jardine in Taggart for 16 years, and has acted on stage in plays as diverse as The Taming of the Shrew and ART by Yasmina Reza. He has presented a regular books programme for Radio Scotland - for which he has interviewed Ian Rankin. He won a Spoken Word Gold Award for his reading of

Strip Jack, a Crimefest Audible UK Sounds of Crime Award for Doors Open and has narrated all the Ian Rankin Rebus books. James lives in Glasgow.

    "Ian Rankin Does it Again!!"

    This was a fantastic story and Rebus was back to his begrudging best – the story flowed really well, could stop listening and the performance was really enjoyable, would recommended this for both die hard Rankin fans as well as lovers of crime fiction in general! Top Book!!

    Story
    "Why use a "Taggart" actor to read a "Rebus" novel"

    Couldn't quite understand why James MacPherson was used as narrator when he played the lead role in Taggart for so long. Just sounded like a poor version of Taggart but set in Edinburgh.

    "Great return for Rebus"

    Rebus is back in his usual contradictory style where it seems that pretty much any means justify getting an end result. I really enjoyed this return for Rebus although it took my husband (another Rebus fan) longer to get into the story. This unabridged version warrants a bit of a longer stint listening at the beginning to really get into the story but once you do the case is intriguing with many twists and turns while you also get to spend a bit more time with Rebus and his friends...and enemies!

    "Good listen"

    Really enjoyed this Rebus audio book and found myself not wanting to turn it off. I found the narrator very easy to follow. I found the story line to be very interesting to follow and although sometimes I could predict things that would happen this was in a way that made me smile and not in a cheesy way where you think we could all see that coming!! if that makes sense??

    "Welcome back Rebus"

    Rebus is back as large as life and twice as awkward, whatever have the police been doing without him! It was such a treat to have a new Rebus novel I really hope Ian Rankin is going to allow him to get back on the force, their detection rate will rise but at a cost.

    "Good to have Rebus back"

    The newly retired Rebus is as sharp and flawed as ever. I have enjoyed the Complaints duo but this is more like Rankin of old.

    "Brilliant"

    I was a Rebus fan and very sad when he 'retired'. I struggled with some of Ian Rankin's other works but was relieved when the 'Complaints' appeared and I found something I could again enjoy. This one combines the two brilliantly and gave me some very mixed loyalties. This is certainly a book that will be listened to over and over as I am sure I missed some subtleties the first time through.
