The iconic Ian Rankin returns with a new Detective John Rebus novel - this year's essential must-read bestseller.
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 - the body was in an area that had already been searched, ten years ago.
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.
None more so than Detective John Rebus.
"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
"Definitely not to be missed. Ian's at the top of his form here, and no reader will go away disappointed." - Peter Robinson
"In A House of Lies shows how investigations of historic crimes are currently shaping our world and who the casualties are. Thrillingly told, with the best cast in contemporary crime, Rankin is one of the most significant social commentators of our time. Just read the book. It says it better than I can." - Denise Mina
"This is absolutely wonderful. Clever, gripping, a fabulous read." - Kate Mosse
"How does Rebus keep on getting better and better? Rankin is a genius." - Lee Child
"In a House of Lies is highly complex procedural that grips from the first sentence... No one in Britain writes better crime novels today." - Mark Sanderson, Evening Standard
"A first rate crime novel: tense, twisty and often very funny. A real joy to see Rebus, Siobhan and Fox together. Rebus still making sparks fly." - Elly Griffiths
