Meet The Author

Stalking a poisoner at the local zoo, Inspector John Rebus comes across a pedophile taking pictures of children. When the social workers claim he is there for legitimate educational reasons, Rebus is faced with a dilemma – should he be outed to protect local kids or given a chance to start anew? As the locals begin a hate campaign Rebus gets a call from the past: the son of a friend has gone missing and no one else will make time to ask the right questions. And then a fragment of Scotland’s criminal history is repatriated at the end of a life sentence for murder. Once more Rebus’s cup of trouble runneth over and the ghosts of past misdeeds return to haunt Edinburgh’s streets…

Born in the Kingdom of Fife in 1960, Ian Rankin graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 1982, and then spent three years writing novels when he was supposed to be working towards a PhD in Scottish Literature. His first Rebus novel was published in 1987, and the Rebus books are now translated into thirty-six languages and are bestsellers worldwide.
