Edinburgh police inspector John Rebuss obsession--rock & roll--seems odd for a man whose dark, depressed side is so central to his character, but Ian Rankin always manages to work it gracefully into his noirish novels featuring Rebus. In Set inMoreEdinburgh police inspector John Rebuss obsession--rock & roll--seems odd for a man whose dark, depressed side is so central to his character, but Ian Rankin always manages to work it gracefully into his noirish novels featuring Rebus.

In Set in Darkness, Rebus has a fling with Lorna Grieve, a faded rock muse whos the sister of Roddy Grieve, an up-and-coming politico who turns up dead on the grounds of the boarded-up hospital thats being torn down to make way for the new Scottish Parliament. Grieves body is the second in the space of days found at Queensberry House- the first was a skeleton bricked up in the fireplace. That decades-old murder seems to be tied to the suicide of a mysterious homeless man whose hefty bank balance is revealed well before his true identity.

So whats the story with Mr Supertramp anyway? He had all this money he either couldnt spend or didnt want to. He took on a new identity. My theory is that he was hiding.Maybe. He was rifling through the scraps on the desk. She folded her arms, gave him a hard look which he failed to notice. He opened the bread bag and shook out the contents: disposable razor, a sliver of soap, toothbrush. An organized mind, he said. Makes himself a wash bag. Doesnt like being dirty.Its like he was acting the part, she said.There are always plenty of subplots in a Rankin mystery.

This time he adds a stalker who happens to be one of Rebuss colleagues, a couple of toughs who hang out in singles clubs and finish their evenings with a rape or two, and the ongoing story of Rebuss tortured past--a bitter divorce, a daughter still recovering from a terrible accident, and a drinking problem.

Set in Darkness hit the bestseller list in Great Britain and should enjoy the same success in its U.S. edition. Rankins ability to keep finding new dimensions in Rebus, handle intricate plot details brilliantly, and evoke the gloom and darkness of his setting keep winning him new admirers, with just cause. --Jane Adams
