Standing in another man's grave

Rebus has never shied away from lost causes, one of the many ways he managed to antagonize his bosses when he was on the force. Now he's back as a retired civilian, reviewing abandoned files. Necessary work, but it's not exactly scratching the itch he feels to be in the heart of the action. He's investigating the disappearances of three women from the same road over ten years. Unlike his skeptical colleagues, Rebus can sense a connection. But pursuing it leads him into the crosshairs of adversaries both old and new.

  • "John Rebus ist zurück! Und steht vor seiner bislang grössten Herausforderung Eigentlich ist John Rebus, ehemals Detective Inspector bei der Polizei in Edinburgh, in Rente. Doch statt untätig zu Hause zu sitzen, geht er nun in der "Cold Case"-Abteilung alten ungelösten Verbrechen nach. Als ihn eine Frau um Hilfe bittet, deren Tochter nach einer Silvesterfeier zur Jahrtausendwende nicht mehr aufgetaucht war, sieht es zunächst nach einem hoffnungslosen Fall aus. Bis sich herausstellt, dass im Lauf der Jahre immer wieder junge Mädchen in einem ähnlichen Gebiet verschwanden wie damals Sally Hazlitt. Zuletzt erst vor wenigen Tagen. Um weiter zu ermitteln, braucht Rebus die Hilfe seiner ehemaligen Kollegin Siobhan Clarke - und gefährdet durch seine unorthodoxen Methoden prompt ihre Karriere. Und dann bestätigt ein schockierender Fund seine schlimmsten Befürchtungen ... Ian Rankin, geboren 1960, ist Grossbritanniens führender Krimiautor, seine Romane sind aus den internationalen Bestsellerlisten nicht mehr wegzudenken. Ian Rankin wurde unter anderem mit dem Gold Dagger für 'Das Souvenir des Mörders', dem Edgar Allan Poe Award für 'Tore der Finsternis' und dem Deutschen Krimipreis für 'Die Kinder des Todes' ausgezeichnet. 'So soll er sterben' und 'Im Namen der Toten' erhielten jeweils als bester Spannungsroman des Jahres den renommierten British Book Award. Für seine Verdienste um die Literatur wurde Ian Rankin mit dem 'Order of the British Empire' ausgezeichnet. Mit 'Ein Rest von Schuld' hatte Ian Rankin seinen Ermittler John Rebus nach 17 Fällen in den Ruhestand geschickt und liess Inspector Malcolm Fox die Bühne betreten. Doch in 'Mädchengrab' meldet sich Rebus wieder zurück. Ian Rankin lebt mit seiner Frau und seinen beiden Söhnen in Edinburgh."
  • "It is twenty-five years since John Rebus appeared on the scene, and five years since he retired. But 2012 sees his return in STANDING IN ANOTHER MAN'S GRAVE. Not only is Rebus as stubborn and anarchic as ever, but he finds himself in trouble with Rankin's latest creation, Malcolm Fox of Edinburgh's internal affairs unit. Added to which, Rebus may be about to derail the career of his ex-colleague Siobhan Clarke, while himself being permanently derailed by mob boss and old adversary Big Ger Cafferty. But all Rebus wants to do is discover the truth about a series of seemingly unconnected disappearances stretching back to the millennium. The problem being, no one else wants to go there - and that includes Rebus's fellow officers. Not that any of that is going to stop Rebus. Not even when his own life and the careers of those around him are on the line."
  • "For the last decade, Nina Hazlitt has been ready to hear the worst about her daughter's disappearance. But the police investigation ground to a halt long ago, and Nina's pleas to the cold case department have led her nowhere. Then she meets the newest member of the team: former detective John Rebus, who has never shied away from lost causes. Two more women have gone missing from the same road, and he can sense a connection."
  • "Na zijn pensionering werkt Rebus samen met een speciale unit mee aan het oplossen van enkele cold cases, m.n. dat van een moeder die dertien jaar na de verdwijning van haar dochter herhaalt dat het om een seriemoordenaar ging."

  • "CRIME & MYSTERY. "Thrilling...Rebus returns-and welcome." (Kirkus Reviews) For more than ten years, Nina Hazlitt feared the worst about her daughter's disappearance. The police investigation ground to a halt long ago, and her pleas to the cold case department go unheard. Until she meets the newest member of the team: former Detective John Rebus. Two more women have gone missing from the same road where Sally Hazlitt was last seen, and Rebus senses a connection. But pursuing it leads him into the crosshairs of adversaries both old and new. Rebus may have missed the thrill of the hunt, but he's up against a powerful enemy who's got even less to lose. STANDING IN ANOTHER MAN'S GRAVE is the triumphant return of John Rebus and a riveting story of sin, redemption, and revenge."
  • "It's been several years since John Rebus was forced to retire, and he now works as a civilian in a cold case unit and yearns to be back on the front line. So when a long-dead case bursts back to life, he can't resist the opportunity to get his feet under the CID desk once more. But Rebus is as stubborn and anarchic as ever, and he quickly finds himself in deep with pretty much everyone, including his ex-colleague Siobhan Clarke. All Rebus wants to do is discover the truth about a series of seemingly unconnected disappearances stretching back to the millennium. But no one else wants to go there - and that includes his fellow officers."
