Why should you attend?

“There’s no one like Ian Rankin for bringing us right into the world of detectives. For anyone who’s fascinated by the inner workings of that world, and all its tricky, brutal, expert ruthlessness, In A House of Lies is a must-read.”―Tana French

“Loved In A House Of Lies. How does Rebus keep on getting better and better? Ian Rankin is a genius.”―Lee Child

In A House of Lies shows how investigations of historic crimes are currently shaping our world and who the casualties are. Thrillingly told, with the best cast in contemporary crime, Rankin is one of the most significant social commentators of our time. Just read the book. It says it better than I can.”―Denise Mina

The Virginia Festival of the Book appreciates the support of the University of Virginia Gamma Knife Center for this program.
