As the multi-million selling master of suspense, Ian Rankin rarely takes second billing. But, in The Dark Remains, William McIlvanney’s name appears above Ian’s. When William died in 2015 he left behind a handwritten manuscript of DC Jack Laidlaw’s first case, and Ian has finished what he started. The Laidlaw novels changed the face of crime fiction and helped inspire the creation of John Rebus. So, inspired by McIlvanney, Ian has completed this brilliant, atmospheric tale of gang violence in 1970s Glasgow. Two maestros for the price of one!
