Read full description of the books:
Excellent. John Rebus short stories. Most are told with a sense of humor, sometimes a very dark one.
"The Dean Curse" plays on Hammett's "The Dain Curse" with Rebus throwing the book across the room because no one has that many coincidences. He's looking at it with far too much of a professional eye. And then he gets called out on a case that uses it ironically.
My favorite, I think, was "Sunday". Most of the story is Rebus taking us through his typical Sunday - walking down the block to get the paper and sundries, making coffee (on his filter day), fixing breakfast, thawing a steak, doing the crossword, etc. Then his underling, Brian Holmes, comes over and we find out why he is concentrating on all of the mundane matters of life.
I wondered if he had been looking in my apartment:
he picked up some books from the floor and stacked them against a wall, beside other columns of paperbacks nad hardbacks, read and unread. One day he would get time to read them. They were like contraband; he couldn't stop himself buying them, but then he never really did anything with them once he'd bought them. The buying was the thing, that sense of ownership.
