IAN RANKIN | Saints of the Shadow Bible

Whether you're a completely obsessed Ian Rankin worshiper, with an insatiable hunger for well-written thrillers, or a casual reader looking for an exciting new series, SAINTS OF THE SHADOW BIBLE (Orion/9781409144748) is the book for you. Full of gritty descriptions, incredible characters and a riveting plot, this book details the return of Rebus, who is investigating a car accident when news arrives that a case from 30 years ago is being reopened. It's a beautifully written book that is already getting great reviews in Canada and abroad: ‘…It’s those subtle little conversations, descriptions and humorous details that make Rankin the fine writer that he is….’ The Vancouver Sun

"Saints of the Shadow Bible is a clever, subtle read, but most of all, it's a genuine pleasure to see Rebus back in the CID." The Guardian

"One of the joys of Ian Rankin’s Rebus detective novels – apart from their intricate plotting and on-the-money descriptions of police procedures – is the soap opera: the complex interweaving of characters we have come to know and love, or, in some cases, to dislike or even hate, and sometimes love and hate together." The Globe and Mail

"Full of the author's dry humour and lovely depicted details of Scottish life, the book is a welcome reunion with an old friend." HELLO! CANADA

Photo and feature ran in the National Post, AFTERWORD READING SOCIETY  on November 12.  Q&A with Ian Rankin.
