Waterstones Says

Retired but not out of the game, Rebus returns to rattle the bones of his own long-buried past in a typically pitch-perfect thriller from which nobody emerges wholly innocent.

In a House of Lies, who can ever know the truth?

John Rebus might be retired, but he's far from finished. In this brand new mystery from the peerless Ian Rankin, the ex-DI returns alongside series stalwart Detective Siobhan Clarke in a case that will dredge up the secrets of the past and disrupt an even murkier present.

Contains an exclusive interview with John Rebus, discussing some of his favourite music in ‘A Life In Records’

In a House of Lies...

Everyone has something to hide...
A missing private investigator is found, locked in a car hidden deep in the woods. Worse still - both for his family and the police - is that his body was in an area that had already been searched.

Everyone has secrets...
Detective Inspector Siobhan Clarke is part of a new inquiry, combing through the mistakes of the original case. There were always suspicions over how the investigation was handled and now - after a decade without answers - it's time for the truth.

Nobody is innocent...
Every officer involved must be questioned, and it seems everyone on the case has something to hide, and everything to lose. But there is one man who knows where the trail may lead - and that it could be the end of him: John Rebus.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'In A House of Lies is Ian Rankin's latest and greatest. It is stunning. I didn't sleep for three nights reading it' - Jilly Cooper 

'Rankin remains the most consistent practitioner of finely crafted, richly detailed, literary crime novels being produced today. He's always been at the top of his game, and this latest is no exception.' - Linwood Barclay

“A satisfying read”

I was sent a copy of In a House of Lies by Ian Rankin to read and review by NetGalley.
A very readable book. Not what you would call exciting but quite compelling in its own way. Character led, with the curmudgeonly... More

“Rebus' Edinburgh is always good for a visit”

I can’t believe this is the 22nd Rebus novel! He might be getting on a bit, but he’s still up there sorting out the criminals of Edinburgh like no body’s business. He’s got a case with serious bite in this novel and... More

“Complex and twisty”

I love how Rebus still manages to be a major character and solve crimes even though he's no longer in the Police. As with all the Rankin books I have read, I like the fact that he anticipates the reader will be... More
