1 Rankin, Ian Resurrection Men
New York, NY, U.S.A. Little Brown & Company 2003 0-316-76684-4 / 9780316766845 First Edition Advanced Reading Copy (ARC) SIGNED by the Author
Uncorrected Advance Proofs. Fine in glossy pictorial wraps, trade-sized (pb). 440pps. An excellent copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. No reading wear and no previous ownership markings. SIGNED and dated by the author -- with one of his unusual designs -- on the title-page. Winner of the 2004 Edgar Award for best novel.

"...Inspector John Rebus has done it again. A few days into a murder inquiry following the brutal death of an Edinburgh art dealer, Rebus blows up at his superior, DCS Gill Templer, and is sent into exile: the remote Scottish Police College, where Rebus must undergo 'retraining.' And he is not alone. At the college, he joins a group of cops equally troubled by authority -- the so-called Resurrection Men, granted one last chance to redeem themselves and save their careers. To learn the merits of teamwork, they're supposed to investigate a long-unsolved case. But there are those on the team who have their own secrets -- secrets connected to the very case they've been given -- and they'll stop at nothing to protect them. As if that's not enough, the Scottish Crime Squad has a favor to ask of Rebus. They think they've found someone who can help them nail a notorious gangster who has controlled the Edinburgh criminal underground for years. All they need is someone to act as go-between -- and they've decided on Rebus, whether he likes it or not..."

2 Rankin, Ian The Flood
London, United Kingdom Orion 2005 0752873091 / 9780752873091 First Edition Hard Cover SIGNED by the Author
Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Black boards. The spine is stamped in gilt. Pale blue endpapers. 205pps. An excellent, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. No apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has a touch of crinkling at the head of the spine; the original price (14.99) is intact. SIGNED by the author -- without further inscription -- on the title-page. Originally published in Scotland in 1986 in an edition of only a few hundred copies, this issue includes a brand new introduction from Rankin.

"Mary Miller has always been an outcast. As a young girl she had fallen into the hot burn -- a torrent of warm chemical run-off from the local coal mine. Fished out white-haired and half-dead, she was initially treated with sympathy. But all that changed when the young man who pushed her in died in an accident down the mines just two days later. From then on she was regarded with a mixture of suspicion and fascination by her God-fearing community. Now, many years later she is hardly less alone. She is the mother of a bastard son, Sandy, and caught up in a faltering affair with a local schoolteacher. Sandy, meanwhile, has fallen in love with a strange homeless girl. But the search for hapiness isn't easy. Both mother and son are gradually being forced to come to terms with the past and a dark secret from Mary's childhood."
