Private investigator Stuart Bloom was missing, presumed dead.
Until now.

His body is discovered in an abandoned car - in an area that had already been searched...

Detective Inspector Siobhan Clarke combs through the mistakes of the original investigation. After a decade without answers, it's time for the truth.

But it seems everyone involved with the case is hiding something.

None more so than Siobhan's own mentor: former detective John Rebus. The only man who knows where the trail may lead - and that it could be the end of him.

In a House of Lies Reviews


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

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
There's no one like Ian Rankin for bringing us right into the world of detectives. For anyone who's fascinated by the inner workings of that world, and all its tricky, brutal, expert ruthlessness, In A House of Lies is a must-read -- Tana French
Out of this rich stew of characters, and a plot so complex it will elude anything other than total concentration, Rankin crafts one of the great Rebus novels, a vibrant slab of a book as gripping as it is intoxicating. -- Paul Connolly * METRO *
Beautifully told, superbly constructed and utterly engrossing, this is vintage Rebus. -- Geoffrey Wansell * DAILY MAIL *
As ever, Rankin contrives to marry intricate plotting to a narrative that never slackens its pace. -- Allan Massie * THE SCOTSMAN *
This is a rewarding experience just as much as a page-turning pleasure -- Alexandra Heminsley * GRAZIA *
