The first stage play from the Sunday Times No. 1 bestselling crime writer. It’s been twenty-five years since Alfred Chalmers was convicted of the gruesome murder of four young women in Edinburgh. Isobel McArthur, Scotland’s first Chief Superintendent, was the woman responsible for putting him behind bars, but the case has haunted her ever since. Now, McArthur decides the time has come for answers but her decision rips opens old wounds and she is soon caught up in a web of corruption, psychological mind-games and deceit. Dark Road is Rankin’s first stage play, debuting at Edinburgh’s Royal Lyceum in September 2013. The book contains an introduction from the author, the original script, plus photos and additional material from the sell-out production. Ian Rankin is the international bestselling author of the Inspector Rebus and Detective Malcolm Fox novels, as well as a string of standalone thrillers.
