Ian Rankin - In a House of Lies — in conversation with Neely Tucker — at Politics and Prose at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Thursday, February 7, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Rankin tried to retire John Rebus, Edinburgh’s top detective, at the end of 2007’s Exit Music, and legions of readers are grateful the attempt was unsuccessful. Semi-retired but still fully on the job, Rebus approaches his 24th case with his signature grit and integrity. When the body of a man missing since 2008 surfaces, Rebus quickly notes that the ankles are bound with police handcuffs—raising questions about the original investigation. Yet evidence seems to point to a low-budget film producer who had been filming where the body was found. Meanwhile, Rebus reopens the case of a seventeen-year-old imprisoned for killing his girlfriend. Solving these puzzles requires hard ethical choices, and Rankin leads Rebus through them with the sure touch of a master. Rankin will be in conversation with Neely Tucker, Washington Post staff writer and author of Only the Hunted Run; Murder, D.C.; and The Ways of the Dead.
