Storyline

DI Rebus investigates the murder of Dr. Joseph Devlin, a retired obstetrician. The man is found in his home, tied to a chair with his wrists slit. On his lap is a miniature coffin, similar to those found in a local museum, with the smiling effigy of a child inside. Devlin had dined the previous evening with Sir James Hogarth, his closest friend. Rebus and DS Siobhan Clarke get on the trail of David Costello when Phillipa Balfour, a university student working at a local museum, tells them she has once again started to receive threatening e-mails from Costello, who has stalked her in the past. When Sir James' ex-wife is found murdered in exactly the same way as Devlin, it becomes apparent that Costello is seeking some type of revenge. Rebus suspects Sir James has had an incestuous relationship with his daughter but is having difficulty finding the evidence. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Ken Stott is a passionate supporter of Hearts football team. In this episode it is revealed that Rebus is a supporter of Hibernians, the other team in Edinburgh. Hearts and Hibernians supporters are fierce rivals. Ken Stott has said that pretending to be overjoyed when he sneaked into Hibernians' ground late at night with his girlfriend was the hardest thing had ever been asked to do as an actor. Ian Rankin, creator of Rebus, commented: "But he also has played Adolf Hitler. So he finds it easier to get inside the mind of Hitler than to get inside the mind of a Hibernian football fan."

Quotes

[Miranda is lying in bed, covered by a sheet but clearly naked beneath it. Rebus is sitting beside the bed, sketching her]
Miranda Masterson: Did I say I was going to America soon?
DI John Rebus: America? I do not recall you saying that, no. Not for ever, I hope.
Miranda Masterson: Six month exchange. I just thought you should know that, so that instead of sitting there colouring, we might use our time more... fruitfully.
[she grins seductively at him and he grins back]
DI John Rebus: Fruitfully? I like the sound of that.

Not sure I agree with the other comment - but, then, I haven't read the books.
1 February 2006 | by txakuraSee all my reviews

For 90 minutes they manage to get in a lot of character development. I look forward to seeing any and all of the previous - or later "Rebus" stories.

I find lots of new characters in stories on British (aka PBS and BBC America) television. I'll have to admit I'm partial to British mysteries. They know a lot more about how to make a story a story instead of "defaulting" to gore, violence and destruction. That plus, as I said above, REAL character development and REAL characters.

P.S. I'm absolutely overwhelmed by Claire Price. She's beautiful and thoroughly believable in the Detective Sergeant character.
