We are thrilled to host acclaimed crime writer Ian Rankin, in conversation with fellow writer, AA Dhand. Ian will be talking about the latest novel in his bestselling Rebus series, A Song for the Dark Times. 

When his daughter Samantha calls in the dead of night, John Rebus knows it’s not good news. Her husband has been missing for two days. Rebus fears the worst – and knows from his lifetime in the police that his daughter will be the prime suspect. He wasn’t the best father – the job always came first – but now his daughter needs him more than ever.  But is he going as a father or a detective? As he leaves at dawn to drive to the windswept coast – and a small town with big secrets – he wonders whether this might be the first time in his life where the truth is the one thing he doesn’t want to find… 

Ian Rankin has been elected a Hawthornden Fellow, and is also a past winner of the Chandler-Fulbright Award. He is the recipient of four Crime Writers’ Association Dagger Awards including the prestigious Diamond Dagger in 2005. Ian has received an OBE for services to literature, which he opted to receive in his home city of Edinburgh.  

Chaired by AA Dhand, author of the Detective Harry Virdee series.
