Despite the novels being set in totally different countries, for me it is quite easy to view John Rebus in much the same light as Michael Connelly s Harry Bosch They are both rather dour characters with strong codes of ethics and morals, yet both are prepared to bend the rules to achieve just or at least satisfactory, outcomes Their immediate superiors tend to let Rebus and Bosch operate somewhat independently, with little supervision, but as bosses they prepared provide the backup and support needed to ensure their star detectives rein in the baddies in their own inimitable ways Of course, the stories and the way they are presented, particularly on audiobooks, are usually quite different but as a descendant of British heritage, I find the Scottish language The tenth book in the Rebus series picks up from the end of the previous book Rebus is faced with a moral dilemma of dealing with a freed pedophile And at the same time he is trying to keep an eye on a serial killer that returned to town And a son of a friend of his is missing Three cases for rebus to play with and takes us on a your of Edinbrughs underbelly Enjoyable Noir Dark Criminal And loving all at once á Dead Souls ↠´ This Orion Hardcover is signed by Ian Rankin. 3. 5 stars. As a high school teacher, there were many times a student s behavior would become crystal clear after meeting his parents I d run into problems with work ethic or attitude or whatever, and I d think, What s the deal with this kid Then I d meet Mom and or Dad in a parent conference and immediately realize, Oh, of course that s why he fill in the blank It would be some sort of weird mirror image, where son s classroom surliness was reflected in Dad s obvious displeasure at coming to school for a meeting. Even so, I never felt this was a question of genetics as much as it was learned behavior The nature vs nurture question has always felt sort of beside the point I mean, it s obvious to me that while some personality traits are clearly handed down from parent t A colleague s suicide Pedophiles A missing child A serial killer You never know your luck, muses Rebus Driven by instinct and experience, he searches for connections, against official skepticism But at night, unsoothed by whiskey, Rebus faces his ghosts and the prospect of his daughter s possibly permanent paralysis Soldiering through dank, desperate slums and the tony flats of the Scottish chic, Rebus uncovers a chain of crime, deceit, and hidden sins knowing it s himself he s really trying to save. Another great Ian Rankin read The subject matter of pedophiles and missing children is a hard one to deal with but when Rebus sends them away it makes it all better This book has a realistic plot with many sub plots that tie together and kept me engros The 10th novel in the Inspector Rebus series by Ian Rankin. Another excellent novel that further developes the character of Rebus and keeps these books fresh and interesting. I haven t read a Rebus novel that I haven t enjoyed but this one is so far the best Rebus is really multi tasking in this one He s outing a pedophile, looking for the son of an old flame, also trying to figure out what s going on with a recently released killer But, this book is much than Rebus trying to solve these crimes We learn about Rebus teen years, the girl that got away, the friend he felt that he let down It really shows why Rebus is the way he is today It also shows him wondering if he should still be a policeman, struggling to maintain a relationship with his daughter and his girl friend, mourning the passing of a friend If you want to know why Rebus is that way he is then I suggest you read this book. Dead Souls was written in 1999 and depicts a John Rebus who is increasingly feeling dead inside and wondering if he should continue as a police officer In the beginning of the book he is part of a stakeout of the Edinburgh zoo trying to find the person who is poisoning the animals When he sees a known pedophile taking photos, he gives chase and, while he is going after the pedophile, the poisoner almost is able to do the deed yet again Darren Rouse, the pedophile, claims that he is taking a photography class and the zoo is his assignment This claim is verified by his social worker Rebus discovers that he is living in an apartment that overlooks a playground He tells a reporter he knows about him who refuses to write the story, telling him that there is something i
