The first Rebus novel isn't the most amazing detective novel, but it is a great character study both of Edinburgh and of a man broken by his past. ( )

This is the first of the Inspector Rebus series, and it felt like a get-to-know-you experience reading it. Rebus' horrifying military training comes back to haunt him, a criminal brother complicates the case, and his daughter I kidnapped. Not an easy time for the Inspector. Set in Scotland, the brogue of his audio characters added charm as well. I liked the multi-layer nature if the plot. I will definitely read the second in the series. ( )

I'd picked this up because the The Mystery, Crime, and Thriller Group is reading another of Rankin's books this month Bleeding Hearts: A Novel and never reading any other works by the author I thought I'd give this popular series a try.

This was a terrific first novel in a series and only the second novel by Rankin. The characters were all complex and interesting, most were deeply flawed but also somewhat sympathetic, while Rebus is my favorite Jim Stevens the journalist was also a well drawn and complex character who'd I'd like to learn more about. I will be reading more books in this series.

Decent start to the series. Unfortunately, the series goes downhill. ( )

This is the first in the Rebus series and the first Rankin I have read. Sorry, not impressed. For one thing I am really tired of divorced, messed up police officers with a poor relationship with their child or children. I am also tired of serial killers who have a beef with a particular investigator and kill random people to get at that person. Trying to avoid spoilers here, but this plot just seems to boil over with unlikely events. ( )

Note from Kirkus' Vintage Review Editor:
In 1987 author Ian Rankin introduced Edinburgh, Scotland police detective John Rebus in his first novel, Knots and Crosses. Kirkus awarded the novel a starred review and encouraged our readers to carefully watch this newcomer. For the following 20 years, Rankin treated his loyal readers to a Rebus mystery every year or two until he retired him in 2006 in the excellent novel, Exit Music. As Rankin is bringing Rebus back in his new novel Standing in Another Man’s Grave, we remind you what we thought about Rankin’s first go-round with Rebus. — January 21, 2013

A compelling first novel sent in Edinburgh, where a series of killings of young girls has the city in a panic. Ex-army police detective John Rebus is in the thick of the investigation. Scarred by his elite-corps army training, a nervous breakdown and a divorce, father of teen-age Samantha, Rebus is a dogged but not too sharp investigator. The anonymous letters he starts to receive after the first murder are shrugged off as the work of a crank; he never questions the affluence of his rarely seen hypnotist brother Michael; and he never figures out the one factor common to all the victims. In the meantime, his girlfriend Gill Templet, a press liason policewoman, and hard-bitten, hard-drinking reporter Jim Stevens are smarter. It slowly becomes clear that the killer's focus is Rebus himself, who must finally confront an implacable enemy and hie own long-repressed traumatic memories. Solidly drawn characters, keen psychological insights and an intriguing, well-knit plot--along with a rather florid but individual writing style--make Rankin a newcomer to watch.
