WILD RELEASE NOTES:
RABCK going to HoserLauren! Enjoy! I guess I didn't wild release it after all! Told you I've been desperately unorganized as of late!
This will help me towards collecting the Inspector Rebus series so that I can actually read them in order!
Strip Jack is #4 in the Rebus series.
Rebus has moved into the flat of his girlfriend, Patience. I only read book 3 a couple of months ago and I don't remember any mention of her at all, and all of the sudden Rebus is living with Patience? Did I forget some obvious plot line or what? I don't think this relationship is going to last very long. In the end, Rebus and Gill will probably end up together, which would be nice!
I was also very happy to see Inspector Flight from England make a reappearance in this book. He was in book 3 and was a great character. Hopefully he pops up whenever Rankin can fit him in. I'm also enjoying Holmes, Rebus' new sidekick.
Not the best Rebus book out there, but still enjoyable!
I enjoy Rebus and the way he thinks but I don't enjoy his take on relationships. He is so wishy-washy; on again, off again.
The way Rankin portrays Rebus and his status within the police force is very interesting. Rebus is shown to be a fatherly mentor figure for the younger investigators like Holmes. I like how Rebus helps Holmes along
