Standing in Another Man’s Grave by Ian Rankin (Orion Publishing)
“Mystery fans thought they’d never read about Inspector Rebus again,” says Mike Hamm, manager of Bookmark Books in Halifax, as Rankin had retired the bad-tempered, alcoholic detective back in 2006.
But the Scottish crime writer didn’t let the character lie for too long. Standing in Another Man’s Grave is a current mystery favourite at Bookmark. “I would expect it to continue to be the number one choice for a mystery buyer this holiday season,” says Hamm.
