Event Details

Ian Rankin joins the Guardian Live Book Club to talk about his latest novel in the Inspector Rebus series, A Song For the Dark Times.

The 23rd in the highly acclaimed crime series, Rankin’s new novel follows Detective John Rebus as he attempts to track down the truth behind his son-in-law’s mysterious disappearance. A life on the force has taught Rebus that his daughter will be the prime suspect in the case. The story, set in a small windswept coastal town, centres on a set of family secrets he isn’t sure he wants to uncover. His daughter needs him but is he going as a father or as a detective?

Rankin is the author of over 25 novels and two short story collections – as well as plays, a graphic novel and some non-fiction – many of which have won awards including a gold Crime Writers’ Association prize, an Edgar Award, and a National Book Award for outstanding achievement.

This event is part of our online Book Club, in which The Guardian’s chief books writer Lisa Allardice talks to leading writers about their latest novels, the creative process and isolation. They will also be answering your questions. Bring your own wine!
