A Song for the Dark Times: Signed Edition (Hardback)Ian Rankin (author)
- Sold out
Centred on the disappearance of his daughter’s husband and a set of family secrets that the maverick detective isn’t sure that he wants to uncover, A Song for the Dark Times is an intensely personal case for John Rebus.
A standard edition is available here.
When his daughter Samantha calls in the dead of night, John Rebus knows it’s not good news. Her husband has been missing for two days.
Rebus fears the worst – and knows from his lifetime in the police that his daughter will be the prime suspect.
He wasn’t the best father – the job always came first – but now his daughter needs him more than ever. But is he going as a father or a detective?
As he leaves at dawn to drive to the windswept coast – and a small town with big secrets – he wonders whether this might be the first time in his life where the truth is the one thing he doesn’t want to find...
This special edition will feature an introduction by Ian Rankin and the original script of John Rebus: Lockdown Blues – a monologue written by Ian Rankin and performed by Brian Cox (Succession, Adaptation, The Bourne Identity, Manhunter) as part of the National Theatre of Scotland’s Scenes for Survival project, in association with BBC Scotland.
