Synopsis from Goodreads:

Over the years, Ian Rankin has amassed an incredible portfolio of short stories. Published in crime magazines, composed for events, broadcast on radio, they all share the best qualities of his phenomenally popular Rebus novels.
Brought together for the first time, and including brand new material, this is the ultimate Rebus short-story collection and a must-have book for crime lovers and for Ian’s millions of fans alike.
No Rankin aficionado can go without it.

Why I’m Excited: OH MY GOSH!!!! If you’ve ever been on my blog, chances are you know that Ian Rankin is my favorite author. I own pretty much every single book he’s ever had published. John Rebus is one of my favorite literary characters (if not my favorite), and now I can own all of his short stories plus have some new material?! YES PLEASE. I need this book in my life, and I will pay the ridiculous shipping costs to have this sent over the ocean so I can read it. “No Rankin aficionado can go without it.” How right you are, Goodreads.
