RANKIN RETURNS WITH A NEW REBUS NOVEL | Hachette UK

kOn April 15th, Ian Rankin announced (via Twitter @Beathhigh) that his new novel will be entitled Saints of the Shadow Bible, and will feature his long running series character John Rebus.

Last year saw the return of John Rebus in the bestselling novel Standing in Another Man's Grave (HUK | 9781409144717).  Ian Rankin says, " I was overwhelmed by the reaction of fans. So here he is again, back on the force but paired with one-time nemesis Malcolm Fox in an inquiry which may end up uncovering too much of Rebus's own past, pitting him against old allies.”

Like Standing in Another Man’s Grave the title of the new book Saints of the Shadow Bible is based on a lyric from a Jackie Leven song. Rankin and Leven became friends and worked together on a number of projects in the years leading up to Leven’s death in 2011. Rankin dedicated last year’s novel to the memory of his friend and collaborator.

Saints of the Shadow Bible (Orion) is published in hardback on November 7, 2013! For more details visit www.shadowbible.com.
