Knots & Crosses

It is the first of the Inspector Rebus novels. It was written while Rankin was a postgraduate student at the University of Edinburgh. In the introduction to this novel, Rankin states that Rebus lives directly opposite the window in Marchmont that he looked out of while writing the book. Edinburgh has been shocked by the abduction and subsequent strangling of two young girls.

KNOTS AND CROSSES

A compelling first novel sent in Edinburgh, where a series of killings of young girls has the city in a panic. Ex-army police detective John Rebus is in the thick of the investigation. Scarred by his elite-corps army training, a nervous breakdown and a divorce, father of teen-age Samantha, Rebus is a dogged but not too sharp investigator. The anonymous letters he starts to receive after the first murder are shrugged off as the work of a crank; he never questions the affluence of his rarely seen hypnotist brother Michael; and he never figures out the one factor common to all the victims. In the meantime, his girlfriend Gill Templet, a press liason policewoman, and hard-bitten, hard-drinking reporter Jim Stevens are smarter. It slowly becomes clear that the killer's focus is Rebus himself, who must finally confront an implacable enemy and hie own long-repressed traumatic memories. Solidly drawn characters, keen psychological insights and an intriguing, well-knit plot—along with a rather florid but individual writing style—make Rankin a newcomer to watch.

Inspector Rebus: the birth of a real heavyweight

His brother is also a drug dealer who ends up in prison. Oh, and Rebus is an ex-SAS man with a morbid fear of flying, instilled when he was dropped from a helicopter during a training exercise. None of this would have been a problem if Rankin had followed his original plan and had Rebus killed in the final pages — but as we know, he lived on. And Rankin had to work in his backstory every time Rebus needed to catch a plane or think about his family. Rankin has also expressed more literary concerns about his earlier books. The need to keep things moving forward and following the right tracks, rather than the psychology of the people in the scene, would sometimes dictate the action. I was a young man in love with language, striving for a voice and sometimes overreaching.
