Publisher's Summary

In book 20 of the series, John Rebus returns to investigate the disappearances of three women from the same road over 10 years.

For the last decade, Nina Hazlitt has been ready to hear the worst about her daughter's disappearance. But with no sightings, no body, and no suspect, the police investigation ground to a halt long ago, and Nina's pleas to the cold case department have led her nowhere.

Until she meets the newest member of the team: former Detective John Rebus.

Rebus has never shied away from lost causes - one of the many ways he managed to antagonize his bosses when he was on the force. Now he's back as a retired civilian, reviewing abandoned files. Necessary work, but it's not exactly scratching the itch he feels to be in the heart of the action.

Two more women have gone missing from the same road where Sally Hazlitt was last seen. Unlike his skeptical colleagues, Rebus can sense 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.

On the 20th anniversary of Ian Rankin's first American publication comes an audiobook bursting with the vitality and suspense that made its author one of crime fiction's most dazzling stars. Standing in Another Man's Grave is the triumphant return of John Rebus, and a riveting story of sin, redemption, and revenge.

    "Another great Rebus book"
    Would you listen to Standing in Another Man's Grave again? Why?

    Maybe someday when I go back through the Rebus series. It has been great.


    Any additional comments?

    Great series from a great author. I love to hear of all the places in Scotland and having the narrator be Scottish is a bonus. Love to hear the book with a Scottish accent.

    Story
    "The persistent Rebus"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    As usual John Rebus plugs along trying to understand what really happened to a group of missing girls. Rebus is an old school in the extreme. He is crusty and has no patience for rules. He sees his job clearly - get the guilty punished. In this chapter in the ongoing Rebus saga, Rankin takes Rebus to more rural locations.

    The narrator is excellent, although Americans will have to adapt to the strong Scottish accent.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Rankin is not an edge of your seat writer. On the other hand, I did not want to stop listening.


    What does James Macpherson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The Scottish pronunciations


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Missing women, not forgotten
