The various wreaths and cards had been lined up next to the door and were being studied by the mourners. The car was a BMW, Kenny doing all right for himself as a mechanical engineer. In the early days, he'd actually fancied her; awkward under the circumstances. Michael wouldn't be mentioned by name. Rebus then realises that the one of the names in the Black Book refers to them, and another to Cafferty himself. Rebus had to agree, but there was the drive back to Edinburgh to consider.

The next day, Rebus learns that Eddie has disappeared after a night out. Siobhan Clarke is placed in charge of the investigation, although she is outranked by Rebus, and finds herself having to compromise with Edinburgh gangster Morris Cafferty for whom one of the victims was working as a bouncer in hunting down the identity of the riot policeman who apparently assaulted her mother at a demonstration. They eventually resolve the crimes, but don't seem to make any progress at all in curing their angst. He works mainly with Detective Sergeant Siobhan Clarke, who clearly looks up to Rebus even as she fears that she may end up too much like him.

Macrae was old pals with Tayside's assistant chief constable. He could lie and blame the G8. There are also strange injuries inside the mouth. She'd seemed to sense this. The baker was even selling limited-edition G8 pies. It's page-turning, complicated crime, with some fine vignettes containing the only convincing pathos in the book.

The Naming of the Dead book

But while Rebus sees things as black and white -- with Cafferty being as black as they get -- things aren't that simple. Rebus then realises that the one of the names in the Black Book refers to them, and another to Cafferty himself. She suggests that Brian was attacked because of something in it.

Massive stroke was what Chrissie had told Rebus on the phone, assuring him that it was "sudden"-as if that made a difference. Daltrey was whooping now that he could use a drink. Lifestyle, diet, genes-plenty of theories. DI Derek Starr reckoned himself the heir apparent to Macrae's throne.

Of course Merivel promptly falls in love with the forbidden wife and is banished, taking refuge in an insane asylum a New Bedlam run by a Quaker physician with whom he want to school.

A farm in the Borders is raided, where Cafferty used to personally execute his enemies. By the end of the book, Clarke realises that she has grown closer than ever to understanding Rebus: "It's not enough, is it? Scene of Crime on their way?

It was the closing track on Quadrophenia. Suffice it to say it is well crafted and utterly convincing. It feels as if written on the hoof by someone running round with a microphone, collecting soundbites of humour, fury and moral angst -- like Dickens on speed, highly enjoyable, but ultimately breathless.

Plot summary[ edit ] An underlying thread throughout the book is that of familial relationships; the book opens with Detective Inspector John Rebus attending the funeral of his brother Michael, who has died suddenly from a stroke. As the backdrop to his story Rankin has captured the madness and pain of that week in July and it is the perfect setting for the complex and intertwined cases that occupy Rebus.

The baker was even selling limited-edition G8 pies. Kenny was wearing a tie that had been his dad's, Raith's shield on it-some kind of animal holding a belt buckle.

The plots are complex, and the characters spend a lot of time in pubs. The day after a night of arguments with Michael and the students, Rebus discusses Cafferty with Siobhan. Not all Rankin's other books are, by the way. In addition, Rankin is a fun writer, connecting Rebus to contemporary Edinburgh and Scotland and to current events.

Evaluation: Recommended for fans of the Inspector Rebus series.

The Naming Of The Dead

Heather's latest attempt to gain popularity is to become a model. Officers were being drafted in from all over. But Rebus has never been one to stick to the rules, and when Siobhan has a very personal reason for hunting down a riot cop, it looks as though both Rebus and Clarke may be up against their own side Fifteen hundred were coming from London alone.
