The Beat Goes On: The Complete Rebus Stories Summary

The Beat Goes On: The Complete Rebus Stories by Ian Rankin

There is no detective like DI Rebus. Brilliant, irascible and endlessly frustrating to both his friends and his long-suffering bosses, he has made the dark places of Edinburgh his comfort and his home for over two decades. From his beginnings as a young Detective Constable in 'Dead and Buried', right up to his dramatic - but as it turns out, not quite final - retirement in 'The Very Last Drop', we see one of the most compelling, brilliant and mesmeric characters of modern times in his every guise and very much in his element.

The Beat Goes On combines much-loved classics with previously unpublished gems from other media, and includes two brand-new stories written specifically for this collection - 'The Passenger' and 'A Three-Pint Problem'.

This is the ultimate Ian Rankin treasure trove - a must-have book for aficionados and crime lovers as well as a superb introduction from anyone looking to experience DI John Rebus, and the dark and twist-filled crimes he has to investigate, for the very first time.

The Beat Goes On: The Complete Rebus Stories Reviews

"Excellently crafted short stories." * TIMES *
"An enjoyable collection, frequently displaying the playfulness that is characteristic of the author" * INDEPENDENT *
"Rebus is genuinely fun to read no matter how dark his cases become... a deeply satisfying read and evokes the spirit of Edinburgh and Scotland in all its glory." * INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY *
"They are neat, pleasing, inventive... well made, a pleasure to read, one after the other, the work of a practiced and professional craftsman." * SCOTSMAN *
An essential volume for Rebus fans. * CRIME FICTION LOVER *
In this bumper volume he [Rankin] has collected all his Rebus short stories and the results are an undisputed delight... We witness Rebus in his early days as well as the later burdened-by-life incarnation and these vignettes with both new adventures and insights into existing cases with a new perspective, broaden our appreciation of the iconic Edinburgh cop. -- Maxim Jakubowski * LOVE READING *
"A dangerous book to have on your bedside table - you just want to keep reading on and on into the wee small hours of the night - and a dangerous book to lend: make sure you get it back." * CORNFLOWER BOOKS *
'These murky tales exploring the deep recesses of the criminal psyche are well worth a read.' * DAILY EXPRESS *
