The Inspector Rebus books are a series of detective novels by the Scottish author Ian Rankin.

The stories belong to the genre of police procedural detective fiction, with a hardboiled aspect that has led to them being dubbed 'Tartan Noir'.

Dead Souls is not as good as The Falls or Resurrection Men, but it's better than most crime novels on the market. 5 people found this helpful.

When an author as successful as Rankin has been with his tough and idiomatic Scottish thrillers, a problem sets in after several books: how to keep the formula fresh. Rankin has delivered a powerful series of books featuring his beleaguered Detective Inspector John Rebus, and while never less than gripping, a certain tiredness seemed to be setting in. Thankfully, Dead Souls is a resounding return to form, with a plot as enjoyably labyrinthine as any Rankin enthusiast could wish for, and pithy dialogue that fairly leaps off the page.

The 10th novel in the Inspector Rebus series by Ian Rankin. Another excellent novel that further developes the character of Rebus and keeps these books fresh and interesting. Dead Souls was written in 1999 and depicts a John Rebus who is increasingly feeling dead inside and wondering if he should continue as a police officer.

An Inspector Rebus Novel. First published in Great Britain in 1999 by Orion.

Dead Souls is a 1999 crime novel by Ian Rankin that features Inspector Rebus. The title refers both to Joy Division's song "Dead Souls" and to the 1842 Nikolai Gogol novel Dead Souls; quotes from the latter appear at the beginnings of the two divisions of the book. The novel won the French Grand Prix de Littérature Policière upon its publication there in 2004.

Weary, wary, hard-drinking Detective John Rebus returns in author Ian Rankin's internationally acclaimed, award-winning series. As complex and unpredictable as the brooding mists that envelop his Edinburgh beat, Rebus is ever resourceful and determined-but this time, vulnerable and challenged as never before, with complications in his personal life, and events that shake him to the depths of his being... A colleague's suicide. Pedophiles. A missing child. A serial killer. You never know your luck, muses Rebus. Driven by instinct and experience, he searches for connections, against official skepticism. But at night, unsoothed by whiskey, Rebus faces his ghosts-and the prospect of his daughter's possibly permanent paralysis. Soldiering through dank, desperate slums and the tony flats of the Scottish chic, Rebus uncovers a chain of crime, deceit, and hidden sins-knowing it's himself he's really trying to save. . .

A review by someone who loves Rankin said he also liked Peter Robinson gave me the idea of going the opposite direction. I follow Robinson enthusiastically and have done all of his to date. So I picked up Rankin. I really like the Scottish environment, culture, customs, characters. The writing is very very good and the plots engaging and fun for the reader. I am pleased that Rankin is prolific. There're lots of good reads ahead. Join in. BTW. Many are available on Kindle, but the publishers ask what seem to me outrageous fees for doing nothing other than collecting the authors' royalties and taking a cut for their services. Too shoddy!!

This is my 5th or 6th Ian Rankin novel and it's quite good, though not my favorite of the Rebus series. The author has a wonderful command of the language and he draws his main character extremely well. In this story, a few of the secondary characters did rise to Rankin's usual high standard of development.

As with other stories, detective Rebus is following more than one crime. And, as always, he gets in a bit of trouble with the higher ups, though less than in some, perhaps because the existentialist cop is drinking less in this novel than in others.

Dead Souls is not as good as The Falls or Resurrection Men, but it's better than most crime novels on the market.

Ian Rankin, need I say more while recommending a "Krimi"? His characters just become alive. I keep trying other authors but none come close to his skill. He doesn't need to resort to the usual tricks used by the others. He just burrows into the persona of his detectives and their supporting players, nice or not, and squirms them right under your skin. First thing you know you care and just must keep reading and hoping they make out alright.

"Just finished reading this novel at 2:00 A.M. Must admit this is the first of the Rebus series I've read. Am starting a second. The characters are nicely developed and tend to be people one can care about. The multi-level plots are expertly woven together. The vocabulary is at a level that does not insult one's intelligence, and the themes are timeless and intuitive. In this particular novel, the Penn State episode can be more understood. 'People knew and did nothing!' Can't believe how fiction can find so many parallels... I can not highly enough recommend reading this book at this time or, I guess, any time!"

Recommended by a friend. I like the series but not my favorite. I read two of these and that probably is enough for me.

Not one of his best. A lot of time spent on charactors and events not really related to the case.

This is Rankin at his best; a pretty convoluted story, but all strings get neatly pulled together at the end in a very satisfactory way. Rebus is his usual unlovable self, has his usual hassles. All the characters are well described, and become three-dimensional people. As expected, the mistery (or misteries in this case) is solved in a plausable way, without the reader feeling cheated. Highly recommended.
Another great Inspector Rebus novel. Many twists and turns but great read.
