The Naming of the Dead

by Rankin, Ian

Condition: New/New

New York: Little Brown, 2007 Nice, unsold, unread first U.S. edition, 1st printing of this John Rebus mystery set in Edinburgh. Ships in a box, fast service from a real bricks and mortar independent bookstore open since 1998.

The leaders of the free world descend on Scotland for an international conference, and every cop in the country is needed for front-line duty...except one. John Rebus's reputation precedes him, and his bosses don't want him anywhere near Presidents Bush and Putin, which explains why he's manning an abandoned police station when a call comes in. During a preconference dinner at Edinburgh Castle, a delegate has fallen to his death. Accident, suicide, or something altogether more sinister? And is it linked to a grisly find close to the site of the gathering? Are the world's most powerful men at risk from a killer? While the government and secret services attempt to hush the whole thing up, Rebus knows he has only seventy-two hours to find the answers.
