Speaking as one who has read all of Rankin's books, and those by many of his contemporaries, this is a 5 star book. Plot, dialog, rhythm, characterization, juggling the various POVs from a wide cast of familiar and new players, and the wrap up...all perfectly managed. Thoughtful, familiar yet ever fresh and surprising. Love it.

In a House of Lies Ian Rankin Wow! Just Wow! Ian Rankin has brought Edinburgh based Rebus back to us, his brusque and often caustic manner been much missed. I always find myself hearing Ken Stott and Claire Price (DI Siobhan Clarke) as I’m reading these novels. As we go into this novel we find that Rebus has retired, yet again, though this time he is suffering from the maladies of old age, his drinking and smoking have finally caught up with him, he has been diagnosed with COPD which is a fairly serious respiratory problem. We must remember that although his physical health may be bad, but, his brain is still razor sharp. This time we find Rebus and Siobhan working together on not one but two cold cases, we have Stuart Bloom a private investigator that has been missing for over a decade is found locked in a car boot and the separate murder of a beautiful girl by her boyfriend who confessed at the time. I love that Ian Rankin has incorporated some of the other characters f rom previous novels into In a House of Lies but still managed to keep Rebus as the main protagonist. It’s a resounding 10/10 from me and a please hurry with the next one

Everyone has something to hide Everyone has secrets Nobody is innocent A missing private investigator is found, locked in a car hidden deep in the woods. He has ties to the police department from the time that Rebus was there. He is one man who knows where the trail may lead - and that it could be the end of him. For some reason, I was under the impression that there were to be no new Rebus stories for a while. I was more than excited that one had finally been written. And it is a good one. I love following the train of the various clues and trying to guess exactly who committed the murder. This one was further complicated by the passage of time. But for some reason, I wasn't as drawn in as I have been in the past. It just seemed like there weren't so many clues and then all of a sudden, it was solved. But that did not hamper my enjoyment of the book. I do have the desire to go back to Scotland one day and visit all of the places described in the book. I think that would be such fun. Keep the Rebus books coming so that I can keep reading them until I can visit the scene of the crime.
