    Description

    A shooting incident at a private school just north of Edinburgh. Two 17-year olds killed by an ex-Army loner who has gone off the rails. As Detective Inspector John Rebus puts it, 'there's no mystery'... except the why. This question takes Rebus into the heart of a shattered community. Ex-Army himself, Rebus becomes fascinated by the killer, and finds he is not alone. Army investigators are on the scene, and won't be shaken off. The killer had friends and enemies to spare - ranging from civic leaders to the local Goths - leaving behind a legacy of secrets and lies. Rebus has his share of personal problems, too. He's fresh out of hospital, hands heavily bandaged, and he won't say how it happened. Could there be a connection with a house-fire and the unfortunate death of a petty criminal who had been harassing Rebus's colleague Siobhan Clarke? Rebus's bosses seem to think so...

    detective fiction doesn't get much better

    - either does light fiction. Rebus is at this point in the series a complicated, fascinating character. Dark, but not depressing, his humanity shines though his gruffness. The supporting cast features many regulars from the series and Siobhan comes into her own in this novel. Rebus peeks into his army days - not glimpsed, I think, since Knots and Crosses.

    This listen is best appreciated after at least several of the earlier Rebus novels. The only downside is that there aren't many left to go in the series... I had avoided Rankin because I'd been told that his novels are dark -- but they are not depressing and are rather life affirming overall. Rankin combines the best in modern police procedurals with the best elements of Golden Age detection and elements of a good, traditional Brit/Scot cozy with setting and character detail. Good dialogue too.

    Like other later novels in this series, Rankin tackles a social issue along the way. That doesn't get in the way for me, but adds to the listen.

    Packende Geschichte, schlechter Sprecher

    Würden Sie A Question of Blood noch mal anhören? Warum?

    Ich fasse mich kurz: die Geschichte ist düster, spannend und fesselnd, Ian Rankin zeigt viel von der Zerrissenheit seines Inspektor Rebus und man erhält unerwartete Eindrücke in seinen Familienhintergrund. Dass Rebus gehandicapped ist und er die Hilfe von Siobhan Clarke annehmen muss, gibt der beruflichen und privaten Beziehung ganz neue Untertöne. Ein großer Genuss, aber vielleicht etwas schwierig zu verstehen, wenn man die Vorgänger-Krimis nicht kennt.Der Sprecher allerdings ist eine Katastrophe: er schmatzt und schnauft als hätte er seine dritten Zähne nicht richtig eingesetzt, und er ist mir persönlich zu hardboiled: man muss die Rankin Krimis nicht mit Grabesstimme vortragen, ein bisschen mehr Gelassenheit hätte dem Ganzen mehr als gut getan.
