Ian Rankin » In a House of Lies TEXT

E truthNobody is innocentEvery officer involved must be uestioned and it seems everyone on the case has something to hide and everything to lose But there is one man who knows where the trail may lead and that it could be the end of him John Reb Okay I understand that Ian Rankin can write crime That much is obvious But In A House of Lies has been coined a ‘thriller’ and honestly the first half of the novel is about as thrilling as my Monday evenings Rankin takes a lot of time setting the scene with so many different characters both from Rebus’ past and uite a few new faces which ultimately leads to too many threads leading to the investigation In A House of Lies by Ian Rankin is out now from Orion Books My rating 25The storySimply put a body has been uncovered of a man who went missing than a decade ago There are handcuffs around his ankles so everybody is a suspect including the police who worked the missing persons case way back when So of course Rebus knows all about it He trots up bringing a few nearly forgotten characters from the series with him and offers vague clues and gets in the way right until the end Clarke and Fox and a myriad of other police ranking at varying levels of seniority band together to discover the truth But will they get to the bottom of it?What I thoughtIn A House of Lies by Ian Rankin is not a thriller It is a crime novel with a thousand police members of authority and everybody is stepping on one another’s toes to hide the truth or to discover it There are far too many characters old and new making this book difficult to follow and enjoy Also now that Rankin has clearly exhausted his interest in Rebus as a main character I believe that he should move on to and stick with his new detectives or create a new series in a new setting where it isn’t convenient for Rebus to stick his nose in wherever it suits himWhile I agree that Rankin can definitely write and tell a story it was a struggle to get through this book I didn’t get to enjoy a fast paced thrilling who dunnit or simply even the police procedures of interviews and searching for evidence as I was far too busy trying to keep track of who was who and what their role was in the narrative I believe that Rebus is a dead weight character and it is time for him and his huge series to be left on the shelf so that a new protagonist can be formed in Rankin’s mindOverall I found In A House of Lies to be uite disappointing I would recommend this book only to die hard RankinRebus fans as new readers would not know the characters or the history which has made this story possible Thank you to NetGalley and Orion for my advance e copy of In A House of Lies by Ian Rankin in exchange for an honest review

In a House of LiesIN A HOUSE OF LIESEveryone has something to hideA missing private investigator is found locked in a car hidden deep in the woods Worse still both for his family and the police is that his body was in an area that had already been searchedEveryon So Ian Rankin gives us the 22nd in the Edinburgh series featuring the iconic DI John Rebus except Rebus is retired although when was that ever going to stop him? He may well have given up the fags and curbed his excessive need for the drink he may well have trouble climbing the stairs with his emphysema but he has not forgotten his well honed detective gut instincts A group of schoolboys in Poretoun wood discover a well hidden red VW polo in the boot is the body of a dead man with his feet in handcuffs The dead man turns out to be gay private investigator Stuart Bloom who disappeared in 2006 whilst working for film producer Jackie Ness in his fight over a land deal he wanted for film studios he was up against Adrian Brand who wanted it for a golf course The police team looking into Bloom's disappearance at the time came to be discredited in later years with Bloom's mother Catherine accusing it of corruption and negligence The new murder case is to open a can of worms in which no one comes out well no one is innocent and that includes Rebus It is a house of lies speaking of families and the lies they tell each other in ways than one DI Siobhan 'Shiv' Clarke's reputation has a cloud hanging over it she has been the focus of ACU the new version of Complaints Professional Standards with DS Brian Steele and DC Grant Edwards looking at her for leaking to a journalist contact Laura Smith Steele and Edwards were uniforms part of the original 2006 police team nicknamed the Chuggabugs from the Wacky Races Clarke has been seconded to the murder inuiry headed by DCI Graham Sutherland Clarke is getting silent phone calls from public phone boxes With her eye on the ACU efforts to get her for anything Clarke asks Rebus to look into the murder conviction of Ellis Meikle for killing his beautiful girlfriend DI Malcolm Fox has been based at Gartcosh and with his superiors mindful of the possible ramifications to Police Scotland of the Bloom case he is asked to go over the old case files to identify problematic areas and any corrupt police practices that took place Needless to say Morris Gerald Cafferty Big Ger the now revived gangster plays a part in the case still regretful of the ambitions he had been forced to let go of in 2oo6I am not sure how long Ian Rankin can continue this series given Rebus's state of health and retirement but there is still plenty of life left in Rebus so I hope he has a long well deserved future There is no one uite like Rebus for deploying all that he knows and engaging in machinations worthy of Big Ger himself when it comes to getting a result when it looks out of reach Rebus may well be viewed as a dinosaur in the modern Police Scotland but there is no doubt that old policing skills and instincts have their place which computers IT and CCTV are unable to replicate The constant reorganisation restructuring and bone deep budget cuts facing the police is made clear in the novel This is another fantastic addition to what is a brilliant and well loved series Highly Recommended Many thanks to Orion for an ARC
