Inspector John Rebus has messed up badly this time, so badly that he's been sent to a kind of reform school for damaged cops. While there among the last-chancers known as "resurrection men," he joins a covert mission to gain evidence of a drug heist orchestrated by three of his classmates. But the group has been assigned an unsolved murder that may have resulted from Rebus's own mistake. Now Rebus can't determine if he's been set up for a fall or if his disgraced classmates are as ruthless as he suspects. When Detective Sergeant Siobhan Clarke discovers that her investigation of an art dealer's murder is tied to Rebus's inquiry, the two-protégé and mentor-join forces. Soon they find themselves in the midst of an even bigger scandal than they had imagined-a plot with conspirators in every corner of Scotland and deadly implications about their colleagues.… (mais)

Eine Art Hassliebe verbindet Ian Rankins Detective Inspector John Rebus mit seiner Vorgesetzten Gill Templer. Der Wurf mit einem Teebecher während einer Besprechung bringt ihm die Suspendierung vom Dienst ein. Nicht ganz unerwartet öffnen sich Rebus Die Tore der Finsternis, während er auf einem Polizei-College wieder die Schulbank drücken muss. Das Scottish Police College in Tulliallan ist Ort der Aus- und Fortbildung für junge Polizisten und unbotmäßige alte Hasen. Am Beispiel eines alten ungelösten Mordfalls sollen Rebus und andere gefallene Helden wie die Kollegen Gray, McCullough, Ward und andere lernen, wieder als Team zu arbeiten und sich der zur Gewohnheit gewordenen Alleingänge zu enthalten. Warum allerdings Übungsleiter Tennant den Fall Lomax zu Anschauungszwecken ausgewählt hat, bleibt Rebus ein Rätsel, berührt dieser Fall doch ein verdrängtes traumatisches Erlebnis aus seiner eigenen Karriere. In der Tat gelingt es ihm nicht, seine ungute Verwicklung in dieser Angelegenheit zu verheimlichen. Aber es wird dabei auch klar, dass Rebus nicht nur aus erzieherischen Gründen nach Tulliallan beordert wurde, sondern auch Informationen über schwarze Schafe in den eigenen Reihen beschaffen soll. Seine unorthodoxen Nachforschungen bringen ihn in höchste Gefahr, aus der ihn diesmal auch Kollegin Siobhan Clarke nicht wird befreien können. Ein Polizeithriller der Extraklasse! Wieder einmal zeigt Ian Rankin jene unübertroffene Geduld bei der Entwicklung des Plots, die für eine beständige Steigerung der Spannung sorgt. Der Leser folgt den Irrwegen und kleinen Ermittlungserfolgen des Helden John Rebus, seinen psychischen Krisen bei der Bespitzelung eigener Kollegen bis zum nervenaufreibenden Showdown. Auch mit diesem fesselnden und intelligenten Thriller hat Ian Rankin seinen Platz unter den besten Krimiautoren der Gegenwart gefestigt! --Ulrich Deurer

I finished this today. A complex mystery peopled with complex characters, where the line between good and evil doesn't run between people so much as it runs through each human heart. No one's completely innocent, not even the "good" guys. ( )

Another bloody Rebus. Rankin is so cravenly self conscious. The writing is so irritating, I might have half wished that Rebus succumb to his wounds in this one. Yuk. ( )

What's better than one old, at the edge, renegade cop? Five of them in cop rehab. That's the elevator pitch for this Rebus installment. One of the better ones with the normal snoop here, a shot of malt beer there, get in trouble, get your colleague in trouble, have a hangover, repeat a hundred times, and then it ends. The trail is what's important, that and the relationships among the detectives and a select set of criminals (always including some cops.) Easy read and you get a look at some dreary Scottish landscapes, too ( )

Synopsis: Rebus gets fed up with Gill and throws a cup of tea at her. This lands him in a group of other police who are going through retraining. However, this is just a cover for him to find out if three of the men stole money from a criminal. Siobhan is becoming more like Rebus and wonders if the job is worth what she's giving up.
Review: Most of this book was good. There were some draggy parts. It did tie up some loose ends. ( )

Resurrection Men twists and turns its way to a conclusion which is both predictable and unpredictable. Judging by the way the novel has zoomed to the top of the bestseller list, devotees are far from tired of Rebus and his dreadful taste in music and clothes. Rankin is unquestionably an ingenious plotter, but this one seems more about means than end. The line about polite Edinburgh hiding a nasty interior was a wee bit hackneyed when Rebus first preached it. The city is a cleaner place for his efforts; now it is time to do something about these drink-driving policemen.
