The book opens with an ex-soldier entering a school, shooting three students, killing two of them, and then turning the gun on himself - Sounds straightforward but it’s not. Rebus, with his partner Siobhan Clarke, begins investigating and it soon becomes apparent there is much more to this case than meets the eye, .

Everyday low prices on a huge range of new releases and classic fiction. Elif Shafak portrays the deepest empathy found between human beings, deeper by far than most of us can even dream of. Moving back and forwards smoothly between today and the thirteenth centaury we learn the Forty Rules of Love - of Sufism - are as relevant now as they were then. Forty Rules of Love is a book that will stay with me for a long time.

A complex and thought provoking story, believable in most aspects but with many twists and turns. We know from previous Rebus books that he is a complex character, definitely not a team player, in this book we learn some of the reasons why. His early background, not completely explained, but enough detail to form your own opinions, his army career shaped his future outlook, once he joined the police service. Not a lover of authority and command structure which gets him into trouble, but his attention to detail and painstaking tracking finally overcomes the heavy hand of his superiors. This one is, if you are looking for intrigue, plot and counter plot, bolshie nature of the main character, one for your collection. Don't take my word for it, read it.
Edinburgh is on my list of favorite cities. I considered it a safe city for walking around, so it was interesting to read a novel about the underside of the city. This is generally a good novel, but the criminals seem a little inept and do improbable things to call attention to themselves. There may be a few too many subplots which can create excess baggage to the main plot, especially when the plot is compressed into a time schedule of about a week.
The main plot concerns the shooting of three students at a private school and the suicide of the alleged gunman. Two of the students are killed by shots through the head. The third is wounded and is the only witness. It appears a cut and dried case of a murder-suicide by an intruder into the school, but their are questions about motive. The intruder is a former member of the Special Air Service (SAS), and the appearance of two military investigators compounds matters. What are they looking for? There are questions of Post Combat Stress Syndrome.
There is a subplot about charges against DI John Rebus, accused of arson and murder. There is a subplot concerning drug smuggling (by some individuals who do dumb things, but criminals often get caught tripping over their own feet). There is a subplot about teenage gangs. Matters are brought up about John's relatives, and incidents in his past life including his military service. Various strange characters wander through the plot. As the plot progresses, events tie together various people and events.
The Epilogue raises the question of whether well placed people can be convicted of crimes, especially when they have the funds to hire top-of-the-line legal assistance.
Which is a good way to "read" Rankin -- you have the accents done more or less properly, and the leisurely pace of the tapes forces you to savor the details without rushing through it to find out what happens next (also keeps you from peeking at the ending!)

The plot involves an apparently irrational shooting in a private school in a town that is now a suburb of Edinburgh -- a former commando has apparently killed two youths, wounded another, and killed himself, for no discernible reason. The question for the police is not who but why. Hard-drinking and highly independent DI Rebus gets involved, although he is handicapped by having two scalded hands and an investigation against him underway (did he kill the scoundrel who burned to death in a fire about the same time as Rebus's burns? Rebus was the last person seen with him.) Rebus takes Siobhan Clarke along to take notes. As usual, Rebus is trying to get to the truth despite his troubled relationships with colleagues, superiors, news reporters, and army investigators. The book involves a lot of conversations with a lot of people, and Rebus is drinking so much it's amazing that none of his superiors have noticed that he's an alcoholic. (I can't believe that level of drinking is considered normal, even in Scotland!)

I love Rebus, and I love this series. Some of the books in the series are better than others, and I found this one of the better ones. I can't say I was totally surprised by the ending, but in Rankin's books, that's really not the point or the main pleasure -- these have the literary quality of novels and I read them as such.
Can't seem to get enough of Rankin and Rebus...this was my 6th..just started on my 7th. Although it may be better to read the series in order, I haven't, and for me each one could be read as a stand alone. The stories are layered and complex as are the characters especially Rebus.There are no simple solutions here. The endings are never very happy but there is usually just enough justice to keep me from getting too discouraged. This one could be a favorite but each one of the Rebus books is my favorite at the time I'm reading it.
Started these to kill time. I think what pointed me to this series is seeing the author talking up with Craig Ferguson on Craig's show. I'm not sure Ian is from Scotland but he is from somewhere in the British Isles so when he and Craig got going it was a very interesting show. Good books with good character building and interesting, ongoing plot lines along with the recurrent characters.
