Book #5 - "A Good Hanging" by Ian Rankin

Finished Book #5 a few nights ago . . . "A Good Hanging" by Ian Rankin

Rankin is a Scottish author, who writes police dramas, and I'd read all of his books as of about a year ago. Then, we moved back to the US, and I hadn't looks for his books here, but my husband found this one (surprisingly enough) in the checkout line at the grocery store. It's an Inspector Rebus book (the hero from all his other books, as well), but this one is a collection of short stories, rather than a novel. I enjoyed it very much . . . I love the Rebus books, and so enjoyed reading more about him. I'm not sure if this book would appeal to someone unfamiliar with the rest of his work, though, as (because of their length) none of the stories were particularly complex. In any case, I enjoyed it, and would recommend Ian Rankin to anyone who enjoys this sort of thing - investigative police stories. Especially as these are set in Edinburgh, a beautiful city which is very near to my heart. (Part of PC)
