A Question of Blood by Ian Rankin

A Question of Blood finds John Rebus working to solve one crime while being a suspect in another. Rebus had gone to warn a man who had been stalking his partner, Siobhan Clark, but ends up in a drunken stupor with him instead. When the man is then found dead and clues point to Rebus as the perpetrator, he's suspended, but allowed to work in an unofficial capacity with Siobhan as she investigates a multiple murder-suicide at an elementary school. It turns out one of the dead children is the son of Rebus's cousin. John Rebus stays center stage in Ian Rankin's latest mystery, a hard-drinking, hard-working, intensely observant and analytical man. It's a novel receiving plenty of praise with the Washington Post saying, "A Question of Blood is the most impressive of the Rebus novels I've read -- it can certainly bear comparison with the best of today's American crime writing -- and, for those who have not yet met the inspector, it's a good place to start."
