4.0 out of 5 stars Good, and at times great, author Sept. 28 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was on a Rankin kick when I bought this book. Got through about half of his catalog and moved on. I think it's time to finish off the rest of his books.

Got this for my Kindle, an excellent read. I have become a big fan of Rankin over the years and find his methodology to be accurate and realistic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rankin quality again April 11 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Rebus's disrespect for his superiors has never been exceeded! He manages to solve the crime in the last few pages even though he has been told to cease and desist. The tension is high.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Answer of Trust Deciet and History Dec 11 2003
Format:Paperback
Ian Rankin's contemplative story of a tragic school shooting in a small Scottish town wrestles with the fragility of human existence. A Question of Blood gives the reader a look at a life that occurs only after death.
Often the hardest thing for a writer in the detective story genre to accomplish is to maintain a high standard of writing, as well as a completely new plot each and every time, but Ian Rankin has done this very well with his Inspector Rebus series; which he started in 1987 when he was meant to be finishing a PhD in English Literature.
Detective Inspector John Rebus is in hospital, hands heavily bandaged after he put them into a hot bath by mistake, or so he says. Visiting him is his friend and colleague DC Siobhan Clarke. She's telling him all about the shooting that occurred in a private school just North of Edinburgh. A man named Lee Herdman walked into a common room shooting three kids, leaving two dead and one injured, after which he turned the weapon on himself. But that is not the only news; Martin Fairstone, the man who had taken to stalking and harassing Siobhan, has been found burnt to death in his own home under suspicious circumstances. Rebus' bandaged hands don't look too good for him, especially since he was seen leaving the house shortly before it went up in flames.
Once out of hospital Rebus is assigned the task of finding Lee Herdman's motive. It doesn't take him long before he discovers that his cousin lost his son on that day and he is reunited with a sense of family that has been dead a long time. However all is not well as old memories haunt his relationship with his cousin. Rebus must evaluate himself and he is scared by what he finds.
