Retired John Rebus heads to the north of Scotland to be with his daughter Samantha after he learns her common-law spouse and father of her child has been murdered. Meanwhile, Siobhan Clarke is woven into the picture due to the fact that there are people in common with the murder investigation she is working on in Edinburgh. A great co-mingling of clues and bits of information flow back and forth between the former partners. ( )

I can’t believe this is the first book I have read by prolific writer, Ian Rankin. It won’t be the last!
The twenty third novel featuring now retired Edinburgh police Inspector John Rebus finds him trying to help out his somewhat estranged daughter, Samantha, when her partner disappears. Meanwhile, former colleague DI Siobhan Clarke is caught up in the investigation of the murder of a wealthy Saudi student. At some point, some of the people in both cases intersect…could the cases be related? Or not?

In two complex plots, with quite a few red herrings, Rankin moves easily between the storylines. It is an engaging, fast read.

Rankin does such a good job in his character development that I did not have any difficulty reading this as a standalone novel, not having read the prior twenty two in the series! Of late, it seems I have read quite a few police procedurals set in Scotland and do enjoy them. I certainly will be adding Rankin to my list of goto authors. ( )

Rebus is retired (sorta) and, thanks to a diagnosis of COPD, he is moving to a ground floor apartment. Siobhan Clarke is helping him move when she receives a call to investigate the murder of a Saudi student. Then Rebus receives a call from his daughter, Samantha telling him her partner, Keith, has gone missing. Despite their rather strained relationship, Rebus rushes to be with her. His reception by her is less than happy and soon, she makes it clear his presence is not needed. Still, he is concerned about her and decides to stay and investigate on his own since he knows that, should the disappearance turn out to be something worse, Samantha will be the prime, perhaps the only, suspect. And the more he looks into it, the more likely it becomes that Keith's disappearance and murder of the Saudi are connected

Ian Rankin is one of my favourite writers and A Song for the Dark Times is a good example why. It is the twenty-third novel in his Inspector Rebus series and it is still one of the best police procedural series out there. It is, as always, well-written, well-plotted, and intelligent,compelling and it kept me guessing right up to the end. The characters are three-dimensional and I like that they age as the series continues. Overall, a satisfying addition to the series and I recommend it highly.

Thanks to Netgalley and Little, Brown, & Company for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review ( )

I read this book as an electronic advance reading copy provided by Edelweiss, and I have submitted my comments to the publisher via that web site.

This book is not one of the best in Rankin's Rebus series. There are two mysteries, set far apart geographically to give Rebus and Clarke the space to be independent, but neither one is particularly compelling. Even a side story about a threat to Big Ger Cafferty does not add much interest. I gained no new insight into the characters or the human condition in general. Recommended only for established fans of the series. ( )
