In the mid-1980s, in Edinburgh, Ian Rankin was hatching a plot for a 'crime thriller' from his student digs. Knots & Crosses - like its frayed protagonist John Rebus - was rough around the edges but marked a promising debut. More than a quarter of a century later, Rankin and Rebus have a global following. The series has been both critically acclaimed and commercially popular. Detective John Rebus is anything but conventional. The same can be said of Ian Rankin's innovative texts which take crime fiction far beyond formulaic genre, producing radical, disruptive, borderline texts. In the first ever full-length study of all twenty-one Rebus novels, Rodney Marshall argues that Rankin's fiction continues to break new ground, blurring the boundaries between traditional detective novel and modern literature. November 2016 fifth edition: now includes an exclusive eighteen page interview with Ian Rankin and a chapter on Rather Be The Devil, Rankin's new Rebus novel.

The unauthorised and ambitiously defintive guide to Ian Rankin and John Rebus, now including EVEN DOGS IN THE WILD! In 1987 Ian Rankin published the first John Rebus book; even he didn't know what he was unleashing. Nearly thirty years later Rankin and Rebus are the kings of crime fiction, but they are more than that. The books are cultural history of Scotland too. This is the all-purpose handbook to the John Rebus universe. Contained in this volume is everything you could reasonably want to know about the books, their creation and the characters within them, from the birth of the character to the old man staring retirement in the face. The book will answer such questions as: why is Rankin obsessed with Saabs? Why doesn't Siobhan Clarke age but perhaps more importantly it will get to the heart of why we all love John Rebus so much.

Everyone knew Len Dreyer, a handyman for hire in the Park near Niniltna, Alaska, but no one knew anything else about him. Even Kate Shugak hired him to thin the trees on her 160-acre homestead and was planning to ask him to help build a small second cabin on her property for Johnny Morgan, a teenaged boy in her care. But she, the Park's unofficial p.i., seems to have known less about him than anyone. Alaska is a place where anybody can bury his history and start fresh, and for any reason, but this particular mystery comes to light when Len Dreyer turns up murdered. His body is discovered, frozen solid, in the path of a receding glacier with the hole from a shotgun blast in his chest. No one even knew he was missing, but it turns out he's been missing for months. Alaska State Trooper Jim Chopin asks Kate to help him dig into Dreyer's background, in the hope of finding some reason for his murder. She takes the case, mindful of the need for gainful employment as she copes with her responsibility for Johnny, a constant reminder of his father, her dead lover. Little does she imagine that by trying to provide for him she just might put him right in the path of danger. A talented writer at the prime of her abilities, Stabenow delivers a masterful crime novel in A Grave Denied that turns out to be as much about living as it is about dying.

When a man gets to be a hundred years old, and is an Appleby, he should be able to look forward to spending the rest of his life quietly, comfortably, and free from care. So William Appleby, known as The Ancient to his large respectable family and his neighbours, thought. There was the celebration of his hundredth birthday to look forward to, of course, and then the marriage of his favourite great-granddaughter, Barbara, but aside from that, supposedly, just his everyday routine. The Ancient and the rest of the Appleby clan certainly never expected to be confronted with murder! But murder struck, in the midst of the lovely countryside, close to the heart of the clan: decisively, brutally, skilfully. Scotland Yard had a difficult time indeed discovering who the murderer was, because the indomitable front of the Appleby family covered the traces quickly and proudly, in spite of the terror, the distress and the shock that murder brings with it.
