A Song for the Dark Times

AUTHOR: Ian Rankin

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.' THE TIMES * * * * * 'He's gone...' 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... PRAISE FOR A SONG FOR THE DARK TIMES: 'Magnificent ... utterly unputdownable and an immersive pleasure.' MARIAN KEYES 'This is Rankin at his best, Rebus at his best, storytelling that meets the moment and transcends all genres and expectations.' MICHAEL CONNELLY 'An outstanding addition to one of the finest bodies of work in crime fiction.' MICK HERRON * * * * * PRAISE FOR THE ICONIC NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER: 'Ian Rankin is a genius' LEE CHILD 'A master storyteller' GUARDIAN 'Rebus is one of British crime writing's greatest characters: alongside Holmes, Poirot and Morse' DAILY MAIL 'Great fiction, full stop' THE TIMES 'One of Britain's leading novelists in any genre' NEW STATESMAN 'Rankin is a phenomenon' SPECTATOR 'Worthy of Agatha Christie at her best' SCOTSMAN 'The king of crime fiction' SUNDAY EXPRESS
