For more than three decades Ian Rankin has been out in front of the pack, delivering the best books out there, raising the bar each and every time. A Song For The Dark Times proves it. This is Rankin at his best, Rebus at his best, storytelling that meets the moment and transcends all genres and expectations.
Magnificent ... utterly unputdownable and an immersive pleasure. I loved it.
An outstanding addition to one of the finest bodies of work in crime fiction.
Only great novels capture the spirit of the age. This is one of them.
There is a sense of warmth and freedom in this novel, as though Rebus's retirement has liberated his creator as much as himself.
Rankin's affection for his character remains undimmed, even as he writes with candour about [Rebus's] failure as a father.
Another class act from a storyteller who makes it seem effortless.
...a gripping, complex mystery
