    So Ian Rankin gives us the 22nd in the Edinburgh series featuring the iconic DI John Rebus, except Rebus is retired, although when was that ever going to stop him? He may well have given up the fags and curbed his excessive need for the drink, he may well have trouble climbing the stai...

    ?Who is it exactly that you?ve been speaking to, Siobhan?? ?He?s an ex-cop. Been retired a few years. And if I know him, he?ll be turning up here in the next ten or fifteen minutes.? ?Feel like telling us a bit about him before that happens?? ?In ten or fiftee...

    There?s no doubt that Ian Rankin is one of Britain?s finest crime fiction writers, in recent times maybe the best of all. But he?s now having to address a problem of his own making: by allowing his Edinburgh detective to age in real time he now finds that his frontman is well pas...

    Although John Rebus is retired and suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, he is drawn into Siobhan Clarke?s latest investigation. A skeleton is discovered in the woods and later determined to be that of a man Rebus and his team tried to find years ago. Because they wer...

    Ian Rankin's legendary creation John Rebus may have retired from the police force, but he's lost none of his investigation skills. With over twenty books in the Rebus series Rankin, like the detective himself, shows no sign of slowing down. In A House Of Lies is dramatic, thrilling &a...

    First this not an Inspector Rebus because he is now 72 finished he is past it, not even been brought back for cold cases. This perfect example of money wasted as police officers are made to retire at 60 yet load of the good offices do not become brilliant till 55-57. This is Siobhan C...

    Time Rebus retired for good I?ve been a fan of Ian Rankin?s Rebus from his early books but I think it?s time for one of us to part company. Earlier books were cutting edge but I found this one to be tired, cliched and with a story that stretched credibility too much and relie...

    I have a soft spot for Rebus given it was this series that got me interested in reading crime fiction in the first place, and I can't believe we still have new additions to it so many years after it began, not that there is any reason to stop producing a series that is universally popu...

    Not five star is the determination of the correct edition I actually read since it does not appear in the long list of editions. I could monkey with it, but I won't. Mine is US edition from Little Brown and 372 pages. I did earlier take advantage of the free preview Kindle from Amazon ...

    Now the looong wait for #23....review to follow. ...

    The latest John Rebus novel by Ian Rankin is simply delicious. A car is found with a skeleton in it. The skeleton of a young man who went missing several years early. Problem is, the car wasn't there when the police searched the area. Now the case is being reopened, with Siobhan ...

    John Rebus is now pushing 70 and has been retired from Scotland's Lothian and Borders Police for several years. He's been retired so long that the Lothian and Borders Police no longer exists; it's now Police Scotland. But all of his former colleagues are now a part of this "new" police...

    Rebus may have been told that he is in a ?managed decline,? but I?m delighted to say that Ian Rankin certainly isn?t. In A House Of Lies is excellent. When long-dead body is discovered in an abandoned car Siobhan Clarke and Malcolm Fox are part of the MIT investigating. Rebu...

    Well there's nothing stopping Rebus is there? Coming back on the scene for a cold case and getting into some really troubling lies. Set in Edinburgh, it's familiar territory as far as the city goes, but there's nothing familiar about what Rebus finds in this novel. Tip: Ventur...

    In A House of Lies, Ian Rankin's retired police detective is brought back for another novel. An abandoned vehicle is found hidden in the woods and inside of the trunk is the decomposed body of a male, handcuffed at the ankles. It is believed the body may be that of a man missin...

    A dead body from an investigation years back turns up in a car and what are the chances that retired DI Rebus will know who he is and about the case? Odds on if you know anything about Rebus from previous experience. Once he knows about the body, he does his usual of trying to get in ...

    The DI John Rebus series is quite mature and familiar now that it is well over 20 entries long. Ian Rankin has done an excellent job of revitalizing the series recently by raising the profile of DI Siobhan Clarke (whom we have seen grown and develop from a uniformed officer to a season...

    I am an avid Inspector Rebus fan. When Rebus left the police, I hoped that wasn't the end of the series. And it wasn't. This is the best post-retirement book so far. I loved it. ...

    Rebus may be retired from the police force but he certainly is still detecting. A dead body is found in an abandoned car with a little quirk to it. It turns out to be linked to a case Rebus investigated unsuccessfully years ago. The investigation was a scandal in itself with all types...

    No need to say anything. Rankin and Rebus are a winning combination. ...

    In a House of Lies is, of course, the latest book about John Rebus, sometime DI with Lothian and Borders Police. That will be enough for most people to just decide to read - it would (was) be enough for me. But as this series evolves, Rankin continues to develop his characters and to a...

    In a House of Lies (Inspector Rebus, #22) by Ian Rankin. Siobhan Clarke receives a call that puts a smile on her face. She's at a freshly uncovered body inside the trunk of a car. A body that sets the team back to a case thought solved in 2006. Rebus is on the ball again. Although r...

    If you are at #22 of the Rebus series you know the flavor, style, characters and conflicts. This is a very satisfying tale. In fact there is more "justice" in this one than I have felt in some others. There is still Cafferty ruling the under world and Rebus still trying to put him away...

    Okay, I understand that Ian Rankin can write crime. That much is obvious. But In A House of Lies has been coined a ?thriller?, and honestly, the first half of the novel is about as thrilling as my Monday evenings. Rankin takes a lot of time setting the scene with so many different ...

    I have read Ian Rankin for years. I was not a fan, however, of the novels that featured a local thug and crime boss named Cafferty. These kinds of crimes and the corruption involved don't make exciting stories to me. Rebus has been retired for several years so his involvement in invest...

    Time Rebus retired for good I?ve been a fan of Ian Rankin?s Rebus from his early books but I think it?s time for one of us to part company. Earlier books were cutting edge but I found this one to be tired, cliched and with a story that stretched credibility too much and relie...

    John Rebus is now pushing 70 and has been retired from Scotland's Lothian and Borders Police for several years. He's been retired so long that the Lothian and Borders Police no longer exists; it's now Police Scotland. But all of his former colleagues are now a part of this "new" police...

    Okay, I understand that Ian Rankin can write crime. That much is obvious. But In A House of Lies has been coined a ?thriller?, and honestly, the first half of the novel is about as thrilling as my Monday evenings. Rankin takes a lot of time setting the scene with so many different ...

    A crime read treat! A slow start but really heated up as Rebus orchestrates in the background. A dead body missing for some years is found in a rusty burnt out car, the ACU: Police Scotland?s Anti-Corruption Unit is still on the tail of Siobhan Clarke, dirty cops are in full bloom...

    I love the Rebus series and have read them all. This is yet a very solid effort and very enjoyable read. Highly recommended. The book centres mostly on Siobhan Clarke - as it should since Rebus has been retired from the force for quite awhile. So how does Master Rankin bring Rebus back...

    The writing was excellent of course. The characters are quite a number of old friends. The plot is intriguing and fairly complicated but unrolls to a very satisfactory conclusion. I enjoyed it but do you know what - I really wish Rebus wasn't retired and he wasn't sick. It makes me...

    If you are at #22 of the Rebus series you know the flavor, style, characters and conflicts. This is a very satisfying tale. In fact there is more "justice" in this one than I have felt in some others. There is still Cafferty ruling the under world and Rebus still trying to put him away...

    Okay, I understand that Ian Rankin can write crime. That much is obvious. But In A House of Lies has been coined a ?thriller?, and honestly, the first half of the novel is about as thrilling as my Monday evenings. Rankin takes a lot of time setting the scene with so many different ...

    I have read Ian Rankin for years. I was not a fan, however, of the novels that featured a local thug and crime boss named Cafferty. These kinds of crimes and the corruption involved don't make exciting stories to me. Rebus has been retired for several years so his involvement in invest...

    What a joy the Rebus series has been over years. He's a bit slower now, he's a retired copper now and he has COPD. Does the slow the man down? Of course not! The bulk of the investigative work (and heavy lifting) is in the capable hands of Rebus protege D.I. Siobhan Clarke - she is sor...

    Crime is not something I often read but I do enjoy watching the John Rebus series on TV so when I noticed this book I thought I'd give it a read. The story opens up well with the discovery of a dead body. It engaged my attention and had me interested. A private investigator locked...
