A GRIPPING REBUS THRILLER FROM THE ICONIC #1 BESTSELLER


* * * * *

Private investigator Stuart Bloom was missing, presumed dead.
Until now.

His body is discovered in an abandoned car - in an area that had already been searched...

Detective Inspector Siobhan Clarke combs through the mistakes of the original investigation. After a decade without answers, it's time for the truth.

But it seems everyone involved with the case is hiding something.

None more so than Siobhan's own mentor: former detective John Rebus. The only man who knows where the trail may lead - and that it could be the end of him.

NOBODY IS INNOCENT
