Notes From Your Bookseller

Although Ian Rankin's Inspector John Rebus is retired, we know that the best of the best can never resist being pulled back in. We also know that when family is involved, we can't say no. Rebus has aged over the course of 23 novels. We've grown with him. How can WE say no to this emotional and raw procedural?

"He’s gone…"
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…

A thrilling new Rebus novel about crime, punishment, and redemption, from the Edgar Award-winning "genius" of the genre (Lee Child, bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series)
