IAN RANKIN Untitled Sunday Times No. 1 bestseller Ian Rankin returns with his gripping new Edinburgh-set crime novel. Ian Rankin has always written his Rebus novels in real time, meaning that six years ago Rebus had to retire from the police. To the delight of his fans worldwide, Rebus finally returned in 2012 but this time as an ex-copper working as a civilian on cold cases. Now in 2013, as Ian writes his new book, the law has changed, meaning Rebus could officially rejoin the force . . . but can Rebus return to a world where everything has changed but him? There are new rules, new names and new threats – and not all of them from criminals. Ian’s new novel promises to deliver a twisting, turning, gripping plot paired with the flair for writing that raises Rankin’s novels far above their contemporaries. Moving, powerful and utterly assured, this new novel will showcase Rankin at his very best. • Major media campaign over a six-month period. • National author tour. Ian Rankin is the bestselling author of the Inspector Rebus and Detective Malcolm Fox novels, as well as a string of standalone thrillers.
