A great read ( HAM & HIGH)
Stunning black-and-white photography...A non-fiction work of intelligent analysis (Elizabeth Buie GLASGOW HERALD)
Fascinating, as much for the revealing insight into the genesis of his characters, and an excellent collection of photographs...as for his personal views of Scotland and its people ( CHOICE)
Trish Malley and Ross Gillespie...provide a visual language to complement the dark and complex thoughts of Scotland's most famous sleuth ( BRITISH JOURNAL OF PHOTOGRAPH)
atmospherically illustrated with a series of stunning shots, mostly of Edinburgh ( DAILY MAIL (Scotland))
No discerning coffee table should be without this visually stunning, intriguing snapshot of a Scottish literary icon ( DAILY RECORD)
The autobiographical narrative of real Rankin is punctuated by the observations of unreal Rebus and are interwoven with acute and often wry tangential digressions on the nature of Scottishness. The formula works. Rebus 's myriad fans will be fascinated by the relationship between their hero and Rankin and general readers will find much to ponder over in Rankin's speculations about his own times and nation. The evocative photographs are a brilliant complement to the text ( DAILY MAIL)
This evocative and stunningly produced book highlights the places that inspired the settings for the Inspector Rebus novels. It is the modern-day Scotland that the tourist never sees. The book is part biography of Rebus, revealing how he came into being, who he is, and what his Scotland is like. It is also partly an autobiography of Ian Rankin, explaining where he comes from and what his inspirations are. Beautifully illustrated throughout, with pictures that reflect the text, this is the perfect gift for anyone interested in Scotland or in the novels of Ian Rankin.
