There’s never been a better time to shop local, as high streets look to bounce back from an incredibly difficult year so far.


Ian has always been a passionate supporter of independent bookshops, and likewise indies have played a huge part in the ever increasing popularity of the Rebus books.

If you’d like to support your local independent bookshop by buying your copy of A SONG FOR THE DARK TIMES, the Booksellers Association have put together a comprehensive list of UK indies and a tool to help you find your nearest, so you can order online, over the phone or by visiting them in person.

And, to top it off, Scottish indies are giving away an exclusive double-sided map of Rankin’s Edinburgh and the (fictional) village of Naver with every purchase*!


Find your local indie here via the Booksellers Association

You can also support indies by ordering online via Hive.co.uk
