Publisher's Summary

Inspector John Rebus has messed up badly this time, so badly that he's been sent to a kind of reform school for damaged cops. While there among the last-chancers known as "resurrection men," he joins a covert mission to gain evidence of a drug heist orchestrated by three of his classmates. But the group has been assigned an unsolved murder that may have resulted from Rebus's own mistake. Now Rebus can't determine if he's been set up for a fall or if his disgraced classmates are as ruthless as he suspects. When Detective Sergeant Siobhan Clarke discovers that her investigation of an art dealer's murder is tied to Rebus's inquiry, the two - protègè and mentor - join forces. Soon they find themselves in the midst of an even bigger scandal than they had imagined - a plot with conspirators in every corner of Scotland and deadly implications about their colleagues. With the brilliant eye for character and place that earned him the name "the Dickens of Edinburgh," Ian Rankin delivers a page-turning novel of intricate suspense.

Best Rebus novel

Resurrection Men is very possibly Rankin's best Rebus novel, and Macpherson makes the book even more fun. All the stars.

another good book in the series

it's always difficult when someone new does the audio but maybe it's because I'm an American gringo that Mr McPherson's differentiation between the characters was really hard for me to catch in my ear.
also to be fair audio books are really difficult anyway. the story was good and fun and it was good to see further character development and hopefully it'll continue in the next book in the series.

Great in every respect

Finally a Scot as narrator! I hope they re-record the earlier books in the series with McPherson narrating.

Rankin achieves what no other writer of a series does --- he gets better with each book.

Must defend narrator

I really enjoyed the characters in this story; and the accent of the narrator does NOT detract, but rather lends authenticity and a sense of place. Furthermore, I have lost most of my hearing in one ear, and often find it hard to understand people when I am not looking at their mouths while they speak. I use subtitles for movies from the British Isles area of the world because the accents of actors can make understanding difficult. Obviously, this can make audiobooks challenging for me when read by anyone with lousy diction or an overwhelming accent. The narrator here has a lovely voice and does a fantastic job of speaking very clearly through his accent, so that at no point did I have any trouble understanding him. He also does a good job with differentiation of character voices, consistency with each voice, and without silly affectations to female voices. Bravo.

Favourite Rebus story yet!

I love all the Rebus novels by Ian Rankin but this one was my fave. It would make such a great movie. The character development, the way the two cases intertwined, the partner relationship between Clark and Rebus—perfectly crafted and narrated. Did not want it to end!

Strong Scottish accent challenges understanding

As much as i like the sound and rhythm of Scottish accents, this dramatization of a good book was very hard to understand. Rebus colleagues and the "big Ger" band where the worst. Can you offer a different production of this title?

Too confusing

The intertwining stories left me confused as too characters and plot. Very disappointing. I have enjoyed previous Rebus stories but this will be my last.

As good as it gets!

Brilliant story! As other Reubus plots, multiple strands all come together in the end. Narration just terrific
