Join us at Metropolitain Brasserie for a delicious lunch and a conversation with the author. 


He’s back! Don’t miss the return of Scotland’s Ian Rankin with the latest book in the Rebus series, Saints of the Shadow Bible. A global bestseller and award winner, and a Writers Festival favourite, we are thrilled to welcome Ian Rankin back to Ottawa for a taste of the new book and a conversation on his work.


Rebus is back on the force, albeit with a demotion and a chip on his shoulder. A thirty-year-old case is being reopened, and Rebus's team from back then is suspected of foul play. With Malcolm Fox as the investigating officer are the past and present about to collide in a shocking and murderous fashion? And does Rebus have anything to hide?


His colleagues back then called themselves 'the Saints', and swore a bond on something called 'the Shadow Bible'. But times have changed and the crimes of the past may not stay hidden much longer, especially with a referendum on Scottish independence just around the corner.


Who are the saints and who the sinners? And can the one ever become the other?


Tickets include a copy of Saints of the Shadow Bible and all proceeds support our Children’s Literacy Programs! A booksigning will follow the event. 


Please Note: Seating for this exclusive event is limited.
