The new Rebus thriller from Ian Rankin

Product description

Review

For more than three decades Ian Rankin has been out in front of the pack, delivering the best books out there, raising the bar each and every time. A Song For The Dark Times proves it. This is Rankin at his best, Rebus at his best, storytelling that meets the moment and transcends all genres and expectations. -- MICHAEL CONNELLY

Magnificent ... utterly unputdownable and an immersive pleasure. I loved it. -- MARIAN KEYES

An outstanding addition to one of the finest bodies of work in crime fiction. -- MICK HERRON

Only great novels capture the spirit of the age. This is one of them. ―
THE TIMES

There is a sense of warmth and freedom in this novel, as though Rebus's retirement has liberated his creator as much as himself. ―
LITERARY REVIEW

Rankin's affection for his character remains undimmed, even as he writes with candour about [Rebus's] failure as a father. ―
THE SUNDAY TIMES

...masterly storytelling ―
SUNDAY EXPRESS

Another class act from a storyteller who makes it seem effortless. ―
SUNDAY MIRROR

...a gripping, complex mystery ―
MAIL ON SUNDAY

[A Song for the Dark Times] is vintage Rankin - which is to say, the best that the crime genre can currently offer. ―
FINANCIAL TIMES

No matter how dark the times, the arrival of a Rankin novel remains one of life's pleasures. -- Matt Nixson ―
DAILY EXPRESS --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
