Bestselling author Ian Rankin regularly consults with the police and draws inspiration from real life cases.  

In this unique event Ian will discuss his new John Rebus thriller, In a House of Lies with BBC Presenter and author of Rip It Up Vic Galloway, exploring the boundaries between fact and fiction. They will be joined by Ralph BouHaidar, Consultant Forensic Pathologist for NHS Lothian to reveal what really happens in a murder investigation.  

As a very special treat, Ian will perform a short set with his band Best Picture.

Ian will be signing copies of In a House of Lies after the event. Copies will, of course, be on sale but if you would like to receive a copy of the book ahead of the event, you can pre-order a copy for half price here.
