Ian Rankin shortlisted for 2024 Edgar Award

'The Rise' by Ian Rankin has been nominated for an Edgar Award for Best Short Story. Amazon Publishing acquired Ian's standalone short thriller for its Amazon Original Stories imprint, which publishes single-sitting reads from bestselling authors, acclaimed storytellers and new voices.

'The Rise' tells the story of the suspicion that ensues when a nightwatchman is found slain in the entrance lobby of a new steel-and-glass residential tower in London. Amazon Original Stories are available to Kindle Unlimited subscribers and Prime members. Amazon said the imprint aims to offer the opportunity for authors to step outside of the formats or genres they’re known for and connect with new readers.
