Βαθμολογία: ★★★★Έπειτα από μια αποχή σχεδόν ενός χρόνου, επέστρεψα για ακόμη μια γύρα στα λημέρια του παλιόφιλου Rebus, το αγαπημένο Εδιμβούργο. Μου έλειψε η γραφή του Rankin και ιδιαίτερα η αίσθηση του χιούμορ που έχει, η οποία αποτυπώνεται εξαιρετικά στους διαλόγους των χαρα [...]
Μια ανάσταση και μια κάθαρση που τελικά εναντιώνονται στο γεγονός πως συμφωνούν στο ότι διαφωνούν με το σύστημα διαφθοράς της εξουσίας αλλα παρόλα αυτα ειναι στενά συνδεδεμένες και αλληλεξαρτώμενες απο αυτο! Η ιστορία μας χαρίζει απλόχερα σχεδια δολοπλοκίας,ατομικού συμ [...]
Scottish Inspector John Rebus has always had a problem with authority, but he gets particularly exorcised one morning and hurls a cup of tea at his supervisor. For this, he is assigned to a stint at Tulliallan, a police academy where problem officers are sent for retraining and to see if their careers can be resurrected.The approach is to take an old case and assign it to the "resurrection men" working under the close supervision of an instructor who will teach them the teamwork necessary to goo [...]
Λυπάμαι ειλικρινά κάθε φορά που "αναγκάζομαι" να βάλω 1 ή 2 αστεράκια σε αστυνομικά βιβλία.Σημαίνει πως το αγαπημένο μου είδος αυτήν τη φορά με άφησε παγερά αδιάφορη ή απογοητευμένη.Είχα ακούσει πολλά και για τον Rankin και για τον Rebus,και είχα σκοπό να πιάσω κάποια στιγμή ένα δι [...]
Another Rebus down. Rebus is punished and sent to school again for a refresher course. He meets a Wild Bunch of officers and they have to work together to solve a cold case. At the same time, an art dealer is killed at his home after an exhibition. DS Siobhan Clarke is investigating this crime, and Rebus is giving her some back up while he is in schooling. A fast past novel. Realistic and noir. Rankin is one of the best novelist who take you from wherever you are to the dark, rain stained cobble [...]
Πιστεύω πως αυτό το μυθιστόρημα θα το απολάμβανα περισσότερο αν οι περιστάσεις ήταν διαφορετικές. Πιο συγκεκριμένα, αν είχαν διαβάσει τα υπόλοιπα βιβλία με πρωταγωνιστή τον επιθεωρητή Ρέμπους θα κατανοούσα ευκολότερα τα γεγονότα. Επίσης, με δυσκόλεψε αρκετά η συνεχής χρή [...]
Πρόκειται για ένα βιβλίο που σε κρατάει σε αγωνία και εάν με αυτό το βιβλίο γνωρίζει ο αναγνώστης τον Ρέμπους τότε σίγουρα θα θέλει να συνεχίσει στην υπόλοιπη ιστορία του.
This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader.--- Another ghost in need of justice. Rebus had confessed to her once, after too many late-night drinks in the Oxford Bar, that he saw ghosts. Or didn’t see them so much as sense them. All the cases, the innocent -- and not so innocent -- victims . . . all those lives turned into CID files . . . They were always more than that to him. He’d seemed to see it as a failing, but Siobhan hadn’t agreed.We wouldn’t be human if they didn’t ge [...]
Resurrection Men by Ian Rankin.Have you ever read a book that you seriously not only couldn't stop reading but didn't want it to end? This was the Inspector Rebus that ranks among my favorites. This was not a 200 or 3oo page book. These Scottish mysteries are a good 438 page bools and often more. So I'm just saying this Ian Rankin is one gifted author to keep an audience (and I mean audience) enraptured in the life of the main character book after book is saying he's earned the rave reviews and [...]
Rebus is one of the series I have read out of order, and this trip to the library was part of doubling back and reading a couple I have missed over the years. An undercover plot against corrupt policemen proves a tough and dangerous assignment for Rebus
Sadly disappointingmehow, this book never lived up to its brilliant premise: Rebus, a walking nightmare of an employee, throws a mug of tea at his female boss and ex-lover and gets sent to a combination boot camp for recruits/rehab center for cops on their last chance. But really he's there undercover, trying to secretly investigate a ring of dirty cops.without revealing his own secrets about a cold case they've been assigned by surprise. Or is his boss trying to get rid of Rebus once and for al [...]
Wow. #13 already in this wonderful series. Although a latecomer to Ian Rankin's and John Rebus' world, I always make sure every 2-3 books I go back to this terrific series in order to get my Rebus and Edinburgh fix. Resurrection Men is another intricately crafted mystery and, as with many of Rankin's books, manages to effectively tie in 2 or more seemingly unrelated crimes where solving either of them is entirely dependent on understanding the other. Forced into remedial training with some poten [...]
It is practically impossible to write a review of one of Ian Rankin’s Inspector Rebus novels without using the word ‘gritty’, so I may as well just get it over with. For anybody who has not met him before, Inspector Rebus is the classic bad boy of the Scottish police, a hard drinking maverick guaranteed to annoy his boss and get his man (or woman). The difference is that Ian Rankin does it so well and Resurrection Men is one of the best of the series.Appropriately number thirteen of the se [...]
Another excellent Rebus story. This book finds DI Rebus sent back to refinishing school (in a way) after an incident at his local police station. He throws a mug of tea at boss, Gill Templar, and finds himself sent for retraining with a group of other reprobates from other districts. But there is more to this assignment than meets the eye and I'll let you read the book to see what. In the meantime, DS Siobhan Clark, Rebus' protégé, is deeply involved with a team trying to solve the murder of a [...]
Excellent book, my first book read by this author and I really loved it, specially with the musical background BBC chose for it.
Good Scottish mystery, makees you really want to go to the pub
This 13th novel in Ian Rankin’s John Rebus series won the Edgar Award for Best Novel in 2004. And every single page of the work speaks for why. The DI Rebus series is a character driven Scottish police procedural focusing on homicide. John Rebus is the main protagonist spanning each novel in the series and his character is deeply flawed: a functioning alcoholic, an aging “dinosaur,” a basically non-promotable maverick and thought to be bent.From the standpoint of the current times, he is a [...]
This is my first Rankin novel read. I was concerned the length would have me emerged in another contemporary over written book. The book is over involved with too much character introspection and not enough setting description. But, the whole mountain of words is built up to a peak of a very good conclusion. The character development is probably the best part of the book. Though there are many, many characters and there are those with very similar names and multiple nicknames that makes the plot [...]
Rebus is sent on a course for polis with problems - maybe corruption, brutality, insurrection, he is with 4 other men for testing times to improve their behaviour. For Rebus, it's actually a set up. A long and involved story of past crimes, work relationship troubles, villains old and new finds Rebus in a fix, getting into very dangerous territory on all fronts. Jean is still his love interest . He's living in Arden St, driving the Saab, drinking and smoking too much, all as usual. Gill Templar [...]
Resurrection Men is an interesting book. The plot is cleverly contrived and presents Rebus in an unusual situation. This story does not dissapoint, the expected range of on going story lines exist with favourite characters developing further. For me the plots become more fascinating with each book. Can't wait to start reading the next one.
This book is definitely a winner. Classic John Rebus, and an excellent book in this wonderful series. This is book number 13 in the series, but it is also a good book for anyone to begin with if they want to sample this series. But I must warn those new dabblers, that this series is seriously addictive. Rebus is always in trouble with the higher-ups so it's not a surprise to find him sent to a retraining group to learn how to be a team player. And it's not a surprise to find out that he got hims [...]
I have read other books in this series and really enjoyed them. This one for me was much less enjoyable than the others because it had so many characters that it was difficult to keep them all straight (it even had a 3 page list at the start of the book explaining who all the main characters were!). It also had more than one case that was being solved at a time in multiple police stations all with different staff. All this coupled with the fact that the book was so long (almost 450 pages) made i [...]
#13 in Rankin's Rebus series sees DI John Rebus sent to a course for delinquent detectives. (After throwing a coffee cup at his superior Gill Templer that is). But all is not as it appears, Rebus has a certain job to do. The other "Resurrection Men" as these wayward coppers are called, are apparently not as they seem either.Solid entry in the always enjoyable Rankin novels. Although Rankin can't resist inserting several of his regulars into his stories (a certain Edinburgh crime boss for example [...]
One of my fave authors and I love Rebus but his character is becoming tedious. It's nice to see a realistic flawed hero but after all Rebus's experience he is starting to appear not jut disillusioned(you can only play that card so long) but stupid. He is always getting into situations where he is beat up or almost killed and like the heroine tied to the railroad tracks,the hero rescues him just in time. Also,be nice to see a few more wins. Although ,no matter university education he appears to h [...]
This the 13th in the addictive John Rebus series featuring the addicted cop who has become a favorite read for many. The book won an Edgar as best mystery in 2004 and I can’t really say why I hadn’t read it before this.When he’s not boozing or smoking, Rebus is generally up to his neck in trouble. This novel is no exception. It begins with the detective throwing a tea mug at his supervisor, which gets him sent to Tulliallan, the Scottish police college, for retraining. We soon discover he [...]
This is the second book featuring Rebus I've ever read, and last time, I was a bit underwhelmed. The ending was too neat, and it was just a little bit unsatisfying. The second time round, I've had a bit of a chance to get to know Rebus, and Siobhan, and the recurring supporting cast, and I have to say I think Rankin is one of my new favourites. It was brilliant. I can see why this won awards - it's a very good story, very well told, with marvellous characters.It was just really satisfying. And a [...]
It's a mystery to me what if any readers have an interest in both Rankin's crime stories and his anal repulsive politics. He should be in the perfect land for this kind of I-break-the-rules-by-playing-by-rules drama, namely nominally Celtic Scotland, which votes overwhelming to remain the whipping boy of England, while putting on a dramatic sneer or two. Sorry, this story is centuries old and I don't have time to look at the butt-end.
I didn't like this book as much as the previous ones in the series. I had trouble keeping up with the parallel stories (Clarke's and Rebus's). Also, I guess that what bothered me even more, was keeping up with all the guys' names and personalities. It won't keep me from reading the next installment though.One other thing that has been driving me crazy, is Siobhan's name, which I can't get myself to pronounce Shivaun (or something of the kind), in my brain of courseBut this has been going on sinc [...]
The ingenuity of some criminal acts and their attempted cover-ups never ceases to amaze me. Good policing requires that you get inside their heads to identify the possibilities. How easy is it to cross the line from good guy to bad guy? 'Aye there's the rub for our man Rebus and I just can't seem to find my way out of his head. The characters are complex and psychologically compelling. Their struggles mirror our own so that you can't help but be driven to the end. I never want to "leave Scotland [...]
Can't remember why I decided to pick this one up; it's a mystery set in Scotland, mostly Edinburgh, revolving around a Scottish detective named John Rebus. I enjoyed it tremendously, though, read most of it in one sitting. Reminded me a bit of Tana French's Dublin Murder Squad novels; the characters are well drawn and feel real, the human interactions here outweigh the actual story IMO. Very likely that I'll read more of these Rebus stories in the future (at last count I think there were 20 of t [...]
