3. REBUS #20!!!!!!! Woohoo! I've been waiting for months for this one!

Ian Rankin, Even Dogs in the Wild - Rebus #20!

Actually, it was only just released in the UK, Australia, and New Zealand on November 7, 2015. And just released in the U.S. on January 19 - but way back sometime last year as soon as I heard the book was in the works I put in my order for a hold at the library. I was the #1 hold!

I got the notice on Wednesday, but didn't have a chance to pick it up until Friday - which was fine, I'm good with a little delayed gratification, especially for a new Ian Rankin book!

I started on the Rebus series some years ago, and have read every single book of the series in order. I've also read his two Malcolm Fox books which take place in Rebus' world.

Inspector John Rebus, now retired, is one of the most fabulous creations ever in the world of crime fiction. Right up there with Sherlock Holmes, in my book. Like Arthur Conan Doyle, Ian Rankin has tried to move on from Rebus, but his millions of readers wouldn't hear of it. So Rankin took 2 years off, and then finally brought forth #20. We fans and hopeless Rebus addicts have rejoiced mightily.

Now please excuse me, I have to get back to my reading...
