Rebus Anniversary Box Set by Ian Rankin

This beautifully designed box set of Knots and Crosses, Black and Blue and Exit Music is a must for collectors and existing fans as well as those who are new to Ian Rankin’s bestselling Inspector Rebus novels.

Year 01:  Knots and Crosses – the novel that first introduced John Rebus.
Year 10:  Black and Blue – the breakthrough novel, winner of the CWA Gold Dagger.
Year 20:  Exit Music – where Rebus retires… but will he ever be able to leave it all behind?

These special collectors’ editions have introductions by Jilly Cooper, Peter Robinson and Mark Lawson plus extra material that’s unique to this box set.

Peer & Press Reviews

Rankin is a phenomenon…  They call his work crime fiction, but the adjective is superfluous… these novels are totally absorbing.

Allan Massie, Spectator

Superbly told, impossible to put down, and laced with Rankin’s unmistakable laconic wit, it precisely underlines the treasure that Rebus has become.

Daily Mail

One of the most beguiling characters in the history of crime fiction.
