A Good Hanging and Other Stories is a collection of short stories by crime writer Ian Rankin. The collection is of 12 short stories set in Edinburgh, where Ian Rankin sets almost all of his novels. These twelve Rebus stories cover a chronological year in his life; "Playback" in March, "A Good Hanging" in August during the Festival Fringe and "Auld Lang Syne" in December.

From the internationally bestselling novelist comes a tale of small time criminals on a new grift that might cost them everything. Peppard and Jarman have a new grift that seems simple enough: Go to the airport. Imitate a hired driver by copying a name that they see in the crowd. Collect the passenger before the real drive does, take him to a secluded area and rob them. Meet and Greet" by Ian Rankin is one of 20 short stories within Mulholland Books's Strand Originals series, featuring thrilling stories by the biggest names in mystery from the Strand Magazine archives.

Rankin, Ian. Which was perhaps, Rebus decided, why he found himself at five minutes to midnight pushing his way through the crowds which thronged the area of the Royal Mile outside the Tron Kirk. night, a night filled with the fumes of beer and whisky, of foam licking into the sky as another can was opened, of badly sung songs and arms around necks and stooped, drunken proclamations of undying love, proclamations which would be forgotten by morning. Rebus had been here before, of course

This is a another great book in the Rebus series. I started by reading one of the more recent of Ian Rankin's Rebus books and then went back to the first in the series and have been running through them all quickly. I do think that there is something to be said for starting with the first and as the series progresses a lot of new information builds on the characters. Like the Henning Mankell series in Sweden,(Wallender) the landscape and culture in Scotland is an integral part of the storytelling.

You can not go wrong reading Ian Rankin!His books are great I am waiting on number 27 all the others have been super!

Seems to be very early Rebus. At the end we are urged to read Knots and Crosses, the first Rebus novel. Looks like these stories preceded the novels.

Good pace with well executed plot twists. Also a variety of atmosphere and tone which keeps up reader's interest .

I have never read an Ian Rankin book I didn't like. When he writes about Reus, it is even better. This booze-loving middle-aged Scot seems an unlikely character to be such a good cop---but he is. His titles also give an insight into his story..read this and enjoy.

these are short stories so there's not a lot of room for character development. I found the tone so understated as to be kind of dull. And the plots kind of boil down to one-twist brainteasers - I guess that's an occupational hazard of the mystery short story.

short stories are just that....to short for great development
Rebus short stories. They do not disappoint.
