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) --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Ian Rankin is always a pleasure to read and this is no different, some going when into the 20+ Rebus; Interestingly, Rebus is apparently a Lee Child fan: Rankin’s Rebus is still far more alive and fresh than Jack Reacher. Give me Scotland over the USA anytime.
Rebus heads north having received a call from his daughter, Samantha, whose partner, Keith, has gone missing. Back in Edinburgh, Siobhan Clarke and Malcolm Fox investigate the murder of a James Bond-worshipping Saudi playboy student. The narrative alternates between the two plots connected by the relationship between Rebus and Clarke as they stay in touch by phone. And, when Siobhan's investigation turns up someone from near to the village in which Rebus's daughter lives, the cases become more intertwined.
As always though, it is the characters who drive the story. We enjoy spending time with the cantankerous John Rebus, and we worry about the COPD which has caused him to leave his flat, due to the struggle with stairs. He is getting old and Siobhan worries about him, even as she is exasperated by both Rebus and Fox. I really hope there are many more Rebus mysteries to come but, should the day come, and it will be a sad day, there is great potential in Clarke's and Fox's love/hate relationship.
And what happens after that last chapter? I cannot wait to find out
