Drugs. Extortion. Slavery. Organized crime is fighting for a hold on John Rebus’ peaceful Scotland. And when Rebus rescues a young Bosnian girl forced into prostitution, he breaks a policeman’s golden rule to never get personally involved in a case. Add to that the hunt for an elderly Nazi accused of slaughtering an entire French village, and Rebus wonders just how evil humans can be. Until his own daughter is mortally injured as a gangland warning for him to back off. Then even a dedicated cop like Rebus might make a deal with the devil to find the culprit. Not for justice—for revenge. A chilling glimpse into the darkest extremes of human cruelty, The Hanging Garden is a page-turning literary thriller. This ninth entry in Ian Rankin’s award-winning series confirms his reputation as a writer of rare and lasting gifts.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The two cases [Rebus] is investigating here are complex, like one of those fiendishly difficult double-sided jigsaws. The skill with which Rankin fits them together is formidable.”

    Sunday Telegraph (London)

  • “Rankin’s handling of the gangland plot, culminating in a sting designed to entrap the multinational mobsters as they raid a huge drug-making plant is masterly.”

    Sunday Times (London)

  • “Rankin uses his laconic prose as a literary paint stripper, scouring away pretensions to reveal the unwholesome reality beneath.”

    Independent (London)

  • “This is a realistic police procedural with a human touch…An excellent choice.”

    Library Journal

  • “Rebus, a puzzle to himself and an enigma to everyone else, especially that array of interesting ladies who’ve been drawn to him over the course of nine outings, remains one of the most charismatic heroes in contemporary crime fiction.”
