Rebus is on trial, and the aging, ill, retired detective may not be able to get out of trouble this time. The latest Rankin was a tad slower than previous additions to the long running series, but still enjoyable. In fact, what I loved about this book, was Rankin‘s skill in giving the reader only what the characters have, and leading you on what turns into a shocking ending.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Another winner in the Rebus Series. It may be a long book at 576 pages but it doesn‘t feel it with Ian Rankins‘s writing style. A mixture of a death of an immigrant, skeletons found in a pub cellar and a young woman going missing. Could these events be connected and has Rebus found a new woman in his life?

Book 9 finished for #NovelNovember

Started my last book for #NovelNovember and always good to get back to Rebus.

A big book at 576 pages so will keep me busy today.

I‘m struggling staying focused on full-length novels lately. Manga has been my jam and I‘ve been devouring volumes as they come in (delivery man has been busy). Despite that, I‘m trying to get back into novels. Here are my two latest choices! Two of my fave authors; extremely different reads.

I‘m sure I started this longer ago than January, and it‘s taken me this long to finish it. I ended up liking this one even though it seemed too long. Rebus being Rebus, he seems bent on self destruction. Missing person, nostalgia, threats, murder, personal drama, loose ends. And, of course, Scotland is its own character. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

John Rebus and crimelord Gerry Cafferty have been each other‘s nemesis for decades. Both have slipped from their heyday as time and new faces have pushed them away from the center of action. Obstinate, maverick, principled and yet close to criminal Rebus advises Shiobhan Clarke on her cases under the radar as he enters the endgame with Cafferty. Final fight for both aging lions; Rebus steps over irrevocable line. Whew. Photo: Edinburgh street shot

The story was good, but the book was annoying and frustrating a lot of the time, mostly due to Ava. Her character ruined the entire reading experience for me and now I'm not sure if I'll continue the series

Part of my reading weekend included a trip to the pub which seemed perfect for my latest trip into the dark world of Edinburgh crime with the wonderful John Rebus. Here a body is found in abandoned car and it soon is clear that the victim disappeared in 2006 when rebus was part of the investigation. More secrets and lies emerge especially when big ger cafferty is involved. The usual great storytelling, perfect with a pint.

Sooo this was the worst book out of the trilogy. It only good thing was that it tied everything with a nice giant bow. My favorite character is Sarah fisher - that women is hella awesome! Overall, a good solid series. This book 3 out of 5. Series is a 5 out of 5, because I want to own this series.
