I never collected Ian Rankin's John Rebus novels: there were just too many. When I saw this short story collection, I decided to buy it because it wasn't at the library. It did not disappoint. Rankin is the rare crime writer who is as good in the short form as his is in his novels. Many of the stories don't even involve murder. Several take place at Christmas; Rebus has a nose for nefarious Santas. Rankin writes about Edinburgh in the same way Chandler used 40s LA. Somewhere I read that he considers his writing as more Robert Louis Stevenson than crime fiction. This volume could be used as supporting evidence.
