Who wrote it

I spent almost half an hour trying to find a book on my beloved's kindle, it was a Stuart MacBride, I'm reading A Dark so Deadly, it wasn't that one, it was an earlier one but he couldn't remember the title.
He'd started reading it and somehow lost it!
Eventually I asked for details of the plot to help me narrow down the choices.
He said 'It's the one where Rebus has retired'
No wonder I couldn't find it, the Rebus books are written by Ian Rankin!

The roof of the boat has had it's first cream coat and it's looking really good, it's had 2 coats of primer, 2 of undercoat and now needs 2 top coat, CHS would have finished it today but the chandlers hadn't got enough cream paint in stock. It should be in by Monday at the latest, so the work on the roof will continue then.
