Item Details

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. Two Scottish detectives investigate the disappearance of a hitchhiking teenage girl, their only clue a photo sent from the missing girl's cell phone.

A patron review from the Adult Summer Reading Game: "Detective Rebus has retired, but is now back as a civilian investigating a series of missing women along a stretch of Scottish highway. A page-turning mystery with some beautiful descriptions of Scottish landscape."

This was the first Rebus story that i have read. It was an excellent piece of suspenseful writing. Rankin is a master storyteller.

I love the Rebus series, but you definitely can't start at the end - you have to get to know him first to appreciate him. I was happy to have a catchup with Rebus and Siobhan.

A great read for chilly November evenings. I'm amazed that Rebus is still standing, even if it is in another man's grave. Siobhan still turns my crank. Malcolm Fox is a total jerk.

Poor old Rebus is starting to look a bit forlorn. He has no power in the police force as he is retired and he drinks and smokes too much for the modern sensibility. I know he is supposed to be a maverick but I think Rankin needs to bring character into the 21st century, put him on a team, maybe like R.E.D. and give him some clout. The plot was terrific as always but was this really just a wake for Rebus?

Thanks Rankin for bringing Rebus back for another run. Not my fave but still love the big lug. Most enjoyed the added description of a drive I love & can't get enough of - wild, desolate, breath-taking beautiful!!

could have been edited some: too many different agencies involved in this Scottish case- 'extra' characters didn't assist in the plot...the actual crimes received little attention. I have enjoyed other Rebus stories far more.

Ive read a 600 page book before even a close to 1000 page book and this book bored me right up till the middle maybe it was because this was my first time reading about "rebus" but this was not my favorite at all
