NYT on Ian Rankin's new Inspector Rebus novel

The Naming of the Dead - Book - Review - New York Times: "It’s been 20 years since Ian Rankin started writing about Inspector John Rebus, the lone-wolf Scottish police detective who lives by his own set of rules. Rebus has a preferred way of conducting himself: any way he wants, and too bad if his superiors don’t like it. Over time this attitude has brought Rebus exactly nothing, unless you count the satisfaction he takes in settling scores, one criminal miscreant at a time. He is now a year from retirement and not exactly resting on his laurels."

I've read a few of these and enjoyed them a lot.
