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 an audiobook 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Pour yourself a celebratory Highland Park, because Rebus is back...Another irresistibly dreary tale.” Entertainment Weekly
“Suspenseful [and] atmospheric.” Wall Street Journal
“Praise the lord, John Rebus is knee-deep in trouble again. To the dismay of many crime-novel fans, the Edinburgh detective retired in Rankin’s 2009 Exit Music…One of the most dogged detectives to walk the earth, not just the Highlands, where much of this novel takes place, Rebus (with Rankin working his story line) is as incomparable as ever.” USA Today
“An impeccably crafted whodunit.” Sunday Times (London)
“Rebus has returned... and it’s a treat to welcome him back.” Times (London)
“Rebus is without doubt one of the funniest among the classical fictional detectives, and his ninteenth case features some fine one-liners... Standing in Another Man’s Grave is Rankin’s most interesting book politically... Cheeringly, it seems clear from the final pages that there will be more Rebus books to chart the next stage in Scotland’s story.” Guardian (London)
“Rankin deserves every award he’s been given: an Edgar, a Gold Dagger, a Diamond Dagger. Surely there’s another one waiting for Rebus’ thrilling return to the fold.” Kirkus Reviews
“Fans of this landmark series, now in its twenty-fifth year, will cry ‘Hosannah!’ at Rebus’ triumphal return...As Arthur Conan Doyle might attest, it’s bloody hard to keep a good detective down.” Library Journal (starred review)
“Ambiguity has never tasted so bittersweet. A gutsy experiment on Rankin’s part and a completely successful one.” Booklist
“MacPherson rolls easily through...multi-syllabic Scottish place names, reminding the listener of the poetic background of the country. He also rolls a few ‘r’s’ for a couple of growling Edinburgh mobsters and employs a slightly gruff but bantering tone to remind the listener that Rebus is still a mischievous and alcoholic throwback of a cop.” AudioFile
