Review

Britain's No. 1 crime writer - Mirror

Quite apart from their excellence as detective novels, every one of them adds something interesting to our understanding of the social landscape of Edinburgh, which Rankin portrays with such subtlety and sensitivity - The Times

Whatever he writes, it will be worth reading... Rankin has redefined the genre and changed publishing expectations of detective fiction - Guardian

Pacy, engaging, smart, ingenious, excellently riddled and raddled - what's not to like about Rebus? - Scotland on Sunday

One of British crime writing's greatest characters, alongside Holmes, Poirot and Morse...Beautifully told, superbly constructed and utterly engrossing - Daily Mail

Loved In a House of Lies. Ian Rankin is a genius - Lee Child --This text refers to the paperback edition.
