Not a Dr Who story read more like a version of the Hitch Hikers' Guide to the Galaxy

If you could sum up Standing in Another Man's Grave in three words, what would they be?

Rebusw after retirement

What was one of the most memorable moments of Standing in Another Man's Grave?

Rebus had retired in Exit Music , Book 17, back in 2007, and Rankin has him popping back up as a civilian working with the cold case squad.

What about James Macpherson’s performance did you like?

James Macpherson bring the book to life. As much as John Thaw was Morse in the TV dramatizations James Macpherson readings bring Rebus to life.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

His on going relationship with Siobhan Clarke.

Any additional comments?

If you thought Rebus was dead and forgotten he is as alive in retirement as he ever was when he was on the Force.

Flying Soldiers reach the 21st Century

As a former member of the AAC I was interested to read about the role of a pilot of the most advanced fighting helicopter in the world. Having read the hard back book before listen to the Audio book I had some preconceptions about the audiobook but I was not let down. Ed Macy in Apache gives a significant insight in the what makes a pilot of the most advanced fighting helicopter in the world. The book details the highs and the lows and in the interview afterwards acknowledges all the groundcrew both AAC and REME that keep these machines in the Air. It is not as critics of Prince Harry have made out to be a flying play station that any 16 year can fly the book details the dedication and commitment of the men and women who fly these awesome machines and their role as flying soldiers in support of troops fighting the worst close combat fighting since Korea. How should read this book anyone wanting to be a pilot, anyone who thinks pilots just have a jolly, anyone who believes the PC reporting of the role of the British Army in Afghanistan in simple terms anyone and everyone.
