From the iconic Number One bestseller Ian Rankin, comes one of the must-read books of the year: A SONG FOR THE DARK TIMES
'Genius ... Only great novels capture the spirit of the age. This is one of them.'
* * * * *
When his daughter Samantha calls in the dead of night, John Rebus knows it's not good news. Her husband has been missing for two days.
Rebus fears the worst - and knows from his lifetime in the police that his daughter will be the prime suspect.
He wasn't the best father - the job always came first - but now his daughter needs him more than ever. But is he going as a father or a detective?
As he leaves at dawn to drive to the windswept coast - and a small town with big secrets - he wonders whether this might be the first time in his life where the truth is the one thing he doesn't want to find...

They call him the Wolfman - because he takes a bite out of his victims and because they found the first victim in the East End's lonely Wolf Street. Scotland Yard are anxious to find the killer and Inspector Rebus is drafted in to help. But his Scotland Yard opposite number, George Flight, isn't happy at yet more interference, and Rebus finds himself dealing with racial prejudice as well as the predations of a violent maniac.
When Rebus is offered a serial killer profile of the Wolfman by an attractive female psychologist, it's too good an opportunity to miss. But in finding an ally, he may have given his enemies an easy means of attack.
Tandis que Siobhan Clarke et l’inspecteur Malcom Fox tentent de démêler cette enquête, John Rebus roule vers le petit village côtier plein de secrets où réside sa fille. Mais, pour la toute première fois, la vérité est peut-être ce qu’il désire le moins découvrir…
Un polar palpitant qui, sur toile de fond de Brexit, aborde la violence de la xénophobie et explore la puissance et la fragilité des liens familiaux. Un livre qui se dévore, pimenté à souhait par l’humour de cet enquêteur atypique.

'Ian Rankin is a genius' Lee Child
A junkie lies dead in an Edinburgh squat, spreadeagled, cross-like on the floor, between two burned-down candles, a five-pointed star daubed on the wall above.
Just another dead addict - until John Rebus begins to chip away at the indifference, treachery, deceit and sleaze that lurks behind the facade of the Edinburgh familiar to tourists.
Only Rebus seems to care about a death which looks more like a murder every day, about a seductive danger he can almost taste, appealing to the darkest corners of his mind...

Discover how it all began in the very first Rebus novel from 'Britain's No.1 crime writer' Daily Mirror
'And in Edinburgh of all places. I mean, you never think of that sort of thing happening in Edinburgh, do you...?'
'That sort of thing' is the brutal abduction and murder of two young girls. And now a third is missing, presumably gone to the same sad end. Detective Sergeant John Rebus, smoking and drinking too much, his own young daughter spirited away south by his disenchanted wife, is one of many policemen hunting the killer.
And then the messages begin to arrive: knotted string and matchstick crosses - taunting Rebus with pieces of a puzzle only he can solve.
Weary, wary, hard-drinking Detective John Rebus returns in author Ian Rankin's internationally acclaimed, award-winning series. As complex and unpredictable as the brooding mists that envelop his Edinburgh beat, Rebus is ever resourceful and determined--but this time, vulnerable and challenged as never before, with complications in his personal life, and events that shake him to the depths of his being....
A colleague's suicide. Pedophiles. A missing child. A serial killer. You never know your luck, muses Rebus. Driven by instinct and experience, he searches for connections, against official skepticism. But at night, unsoothed by whiskey, Rebus faces his ghosts--and the prospect of his daughter's possibly permanent paralysis. Soldiering through dank, desperate slums and the tony flats of the Scottish chic, Rebus uncovers a chain of crime, deceit, and hidden sins--knowing it's himself he's really trying to save....
Ian Rankin's Dead Souls is "crime writing of the highest order" (Daily Express).
Malcolm Fox returns in the stunning second novel in Ian Rankin's series... 'Criminally good' WOMAN & HOME
From the No.1 bestselling author of A SONG FOR THE DARK TIMES.
'Excitingly gripping storytelling' THE TIMES
Malcolm Fox and his team are back, investigating whether fellow cops covered up for Detective Paul Carter. Carter has been found guilty of misconduct, but what should be a simple job is soon complicated by a brutal murder and a weapon that should not even exist.
A trail of revelations leads Fox back to 1985, a year of desperate unrest when letter-bombs and poisonous spores were sent to government offices, and kidnappings and murders were plotted. But while the body count rises the clock starts ticking, and a dramatic turn of events sees Fox in mortal danger.
The seventh Inspector Rebus novel from the No.1 bestselling author of A SONG FOR THE DARK TIMES.
'Rankin continues to be unsurpassed among living British crime writers' THE TIMES
Struggling through another Edinburgh winter Rebus finds himself sucked into a web of intrigue that throws up more questions than answers.
Was the Lord Provost's daughter kidnapped or just another runaway? Why is a city councillor shredding documents that should have been waste paper years ago? And why on earth is Rebus invited to a clay pigeon shoot at the home of the Scottish Office's Permanent Secretary?
Sucked into the machine that is modern Scotland, Rebus confronts the fact that some of his enemies may be beyond justice...
Pour avoir lancé un mug de thé à la tête de sa supérieure, l’inspecteur John Rebus va devoir réapprendre les règles du travail en équipe à l’Académie de police écossaise, dite « le saloon de la dernière chance ». Il devra plancher sur le meurtre non élucidé d’un petit voyou de Glasgow, ainsi que cinq autres officiers insoumis. Or l’un d’eux, Gray, tout comme Rebus, a jadis travaillé sur ce dossier. Simple coïncidence ? Parallèlement, Siobhan Clarke, désormais sergent, enquête sur l’assassinat d’un galeriste à Édimbourg. Les deux affaires sont reliées par la figure menaçante de Big Ger Cafferty, le caïd de la côte Est. Les vieux démons de Rebus sont toujours là : l’alcool et la solitude, le mépris de la hiérarchie et quelques doutes existentiels. Un bon flic n’est-il pas obligé, parfois, de pactiser avec le diable ?

The sixth Inspector Rebus novel from the No.1 bestselling author of A SONG FOR THE DARK TIMES.
'An outstanding creation' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
It is August in Edinburgh and the Festival is in full swing...
A brutally tortured body is discovered in one of the city's ancient subterranean streets and marks on the corpse cause Rebus to suspect the involvement of sectarian activists. The prospect of a terrorist atrocity in a city heaving with tourists is almost unthinkable.
When the victim turns out to be the son of a notorious gangster, Rebus realises he is sitting atop a volcano of mayhem - and it's just about to erupt.
