The iconic Ian Rankin returns with a new Detective John Rebus novel - this year's essential must-read bestseller. 
We’re thrilled to welcome Ian Rankin back to Canada! 
We will be piloting our new Hearing Assist system at this event. If you have ever had a difficult time hearing an author on our stage (or are worried you might) please download the free "Audio Everywhere” app onto your phone and bring it along with your favourite headphones. The App is free from Google Play and the IOS App Store and will allow you to listen to the reading and conversation through your phone and headphones.


Everyone has something to hide
A missing private investigator is found, locked in a car hidden deep in the woods. Worse still - both for his family and the police - is that his body was in an area that had already been searched.


Everyone has secrets
Detective Inspector Siobhan Clarke is part of a new inquiry, combing through the mistakes of the original case. There were always suspicions over how the investigation was handled and now - after a decade without answers - it's time for the truth.


Nobody is innocent
Every officer involved must be questioned, and it seems everyone on the case has something to hide, and everything to lose. But there is one man who knows where the trail may lead - and that it could be the end of him: John Rebus.
