Ian Rankin visits the Audible studios to talk about his author journey. Talking about his successful Rebus novels, Ian describes how he created the character and the challenges he faces writing such a long-running series. The Rebus series is now translated into 22 languages, and the books are best sellers on several continents.
In addition to his Rebus and Malcolm Fox novels, he has also written standalone novels including Doors Open, which was televised in 2012; short stories; a graphic novel, Dark Entries; and a play (with Mark Thomson, the Royal Lyceum Theatre's artistic director), Dark Road, which premiered at the Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh, in September 2013.

I really enjoyed this freebie. Of course, I am now interested in reading crime fiction! paticularly, Ian Rankin. congrats Audible. Great marketing and hook for fans and newbies.
No, only because I have many audio books still to listen to.
I enjoyed hearing the influences in Rankin's writing and how Rebus has evolved over 30 years. It was also great to hear his views on TV dramatisation and audiobooks.
A neat addition to my library of Rankin's work. It's good to hear authors talking briefly about their inspiration and work.
