Ian Rankin

Andrew Bolger of the Financial Times recently took Ian Rankin to lunch to talk about the latest Rebus novel and other aspects of the writer's life and career.

One thing Bolger learned:

Rankin is careful to leave the door open for further books about Rebus – or perhaps Siobhan Clarke, the detective’s female sidekick. “If I have got anything new to say about Rebus, and I have got anything new I want to discover about Edinburgh, then who knows? Siobhan could be the main cop, I could write about Rebus’s early years, or he could come back and do cold cases – there’s a cold case unit in Edinburgh staffed by retired CID guys.”
