John Rebus returns to investigate the disappearances of three women from the same road over ten years. For the last decade, Nina Hazlitt has been ready to hear the worst about her daughter's disappearance. But with no sightings, no body, and no suspect, the police investigation ground to a halt long ago, and Nina's pleas to the cold case department have led her nowhere. Until she meets the newest member of the team: former Detective John Rebus. 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. Two more women have gone missing from the same road where Sally Hazlitt was last seen. Unlike his skeptical colleagues, Rebus can sense 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. On the twentieth anniversary of Ian Rankin's first American publication comes a novel bursting with the vitality and suspense that made its author one of crime fiction's most dazzling stars. STANDING IN ANOTHER MAN'S GRAVE is the triumphant return of John Rebus, and a riveting story of sin, redemption, and revenge.

The seventh novel featuring Inspector John Rebus, available for the first time as an e-book and featuring an exclusive introduction by author Ian Rankin. Detective Inspector John Rebus understands that murder is usually very simple. Passion and greed are the most common motives, but when the bodies begin to pile up—two suicides, one murder, and the mysterious death of an inmate in one of Scotland's largest prisons—Rebus realizes that there's nothing simple about his latest case. What Rebus knows is that it all began with a petty embezzlement scheme. What he discovers is that beneath the killings a conspiracy is hidden, one that runs all the way to the top of the political ladder. And the cost of unraveling this complex web could be horrifyingly high. Everything he holds dear—his job, his life, even his young daughter—is at stake. Powerful men are telling Rebus to "let it take its course," but none of them will reveal just what it is. Rebus stubbornly decides to go forward with his investigation no matter what the cost may be. Men have died for whatever lies at the heart of this plot, and Rebus is determined that those who have set these events in motion will not escape the punishment they deserve.

Nobody likes The Complaints--they're the cops who investigate other cops. It's a department known within the force as "The Dark Side," and it's where Malcolm Fox works. He's a serious man with a father in a nursing home and a sister who persists in an abusive relationship, frustrating problems about which he cannot seem to do anything. Then the reluctant Fox is given a new case. There's a cop named Jamie Breck, and he's dirty. The problem is, no one can prove it. As Fox takes on the job, he learns that there's more to Breck than anyone thinks--dangerous knowledge, especially when a vicious murder takes place far too close to home. In THE COMPLAINTS, Rankin proves again why he is one of the world's most beloved and bestselling crime writers, mixing unstoppable pacing with the deeper question of who decides right from wrong.

There are 206 bones in the human body. Forensic anthropologists know them intimately, and can use them to recreate every kind of violent end. Tempe wakes up to discover that she is enclosed in a kind of very small, very dark, very cold space. She is bound, hands to feet, and there’s something wrong with her ankle. Unsure of where she is, Tempe slowly begins to work out what has happened… When the body of a missing heiress was discovered, Temperance Brennan and Lieutenant Ryan accompanied the remains from Montreal to the Chicago morgue. Their trip was soon interrupted when an incriminating phone call accused Tempe of mishandling the autopsy—and the case. But before Tempe could face her accuser, the one man with information about the call died, and Tempe was left in the dark. As the facts slowly slot into place, Tempe wonders who wants her dead, or at least out of the way, and why? Pulse-pounding, electrifying, and seamlessly weaving between past and present, 206 Bones describes the incredible devastation that occurs when forensic evidence is sabotaged in the lab.
