Please note the new date for this event – Tuesday 12th November. If you have already booked a place, we’ll be in touch to confirm the change.
In Saints of the Shadow Bible, John Rebus is back at work – albeit demoted, with a chip on his shoulder, and deeply mistrustful of everyone. When a 30-year-old case is reopened, Rebus’ former team is suspected of foul play. His colleagues back then called themselves “The Saints”, and swore a bond on something called the Shadow Bible. But times have changed, and the crimes of the past may not stay hidden for much longer – especially with a referendum around the corner. Were his colleagues saints or sinners? And does Rebus himself have anything to hide?
Ian Rankin is the undisputed king of Edinburgh crime writing, with his trademark blend of grit and wit. Don’t miss this chance to join him as he talks about and reads from the latest chapter in Rebus’ knotty and turbulent career.
