The ninth Inspector Rebus novel from the No.1 bestselling author of A SONG FOR THE DARK TIMES.

‘Masterly’ SUNDAY TIMES

‘Ian Rankin is a genius’ Lee Child

DI Rebus is buried under a pile of paperwork but an escalating dispute between the upstart Tommy Telford and Big Ger Cafferty’s gang gives Rebus an escape clause.

Telford is known to have close links with a Chechen gangster bringing refugees into Britain as prostitutes. When Rebus takes under his wing a distraught Bosnian call girl, it gives him a personal reason to make sure Telford goes back to Paisley and pronto.

Then Rebus’s daughter is the victim of an all too professional hit-and-run and Rebus knows that there is now nothing he won’t do to bring down prime suspect Tommy Telford – even if it means cutting a deal with the devil.

Reviews

They call his work crime fiction, but the adjective is superfluous ... these novels are totally absorbing. Once I start reading one, all else goes by the board till I have finished it
SPECTATOR
Rankin's handling of the gangland plot, culminating in a sting designed to entrap the multi-national mobsters as they raid a huge drug-making plant is masterly
SUNDAY TIMES
No one in Britain writes better crime novels today
EVENING STANDARD
An addictive writer ... a remarkable talent
SPECTATOR
No one writes more gripping stories than Rankin
TLS
One of British crime writing's greatest characters: alongside Holmes, Poirot and Morse
DAILY MAIL
Ian Rankin is a genius
Lee Child
