A Song for the Dark Times

Ian Rankin

Award-winning author Ian Rankin’s 23rd novel in the John Rebus series, A Song for the Dark Times, is deeply rooted in the present. This thrilling new book explores the relationship between crime, punishment and redemption and revolves around two incidents: the disappearance of a man in which Rebus’ daughter might be involved, and the murder of a student that mystifies Edinburgh’s top detectives. The title of the book comes from a quote by Bertolt Brecht and in typical Rankin fashion, this is an exciting, fast-paced page-turner for fans of John Rebus.
