Royal Hall -
Saturday 22nd July
2017 marks the thirtieth anniversary of one of crime fiction’s greatest characters, John Rebus, created by leading crime writer Ian Rankin. Rebus returned from retirement in 2012 to star in Standing in Another Man’s Grave. One of crime fiction’s most enduring heroes is heading for immortality, even though he’s apparently drinking himself into an early grave. Ian’s work is translated into thirty six languages as Rebus resonates with readers around the world. The books have twice been dramatised for TV (starring John Hannah and Ken Stott) with rumours of another TV outing on the horizon.
“I had no idea when I published Knots and Crosses in 1987 that Rebus would still be sharing his adventures – and misadventures – with me thirty years later,” Rankin says. “It’s a thrill to be spending 2017 celebrating the man, his legacy and his taste in music.”
