    "Hello Ian and welcome."

    In this interview Ian Rankin gives a brief outline of his new Rebus book about the now retired policeman, who is now a consulting detective, looking into a cold case which becomes linked with an ongoing investigation that his old team are investigating. We also learn that Rebus was nearly never to be a series.

    "Fascinating insight"
    Would you listen to FREE: Audible Interview with Ian Rankin again? Why?

    No, only because I have many audio books still to listen to.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of FREE: Audible Interview with Ian Rankin?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    A neat addition to my library of Rankin's work. It's good to hear authors talking briefly about their inspiration and work.
