Worse still - both for his family and the police - is that his body was in an area that had already been searched. Everyone has secrets Detective Inspector Siobhan Clarke is part of a new inquiry, combing through the mistakes of the original case. There were always suspicions over how the investigation was handled and now - after a decade without answers - it's time for the truth. Nobody is innocent Every officer involved must be questioned, and it seems everyone on the case has something to hide, and everything to lose. But there is one man who knows where the trail may lead - and that it could be the end of him: John Rebus.

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 '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
How does Rebus keep on getting better and better? Rankin is a genius -- Lee Child This is absolutely wonderful. Clever, gripping, a fabulous read -- Kate Mosse 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 Definitely not to be missed. Ian's at the top of his form here, and no reader will go away disappointed. -- Peter Robinson 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 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 -
