»Ian Rankin: You once said crime fiction was «a lower stratum of literary achievement». I know quite a few present-day crime writers who would contest that.

Arthur Conan Doyle: Hardly my concern, sir. But the lure of money and the heartbreak of my readers conspired to revive Holmes, much as your whisky is reviving my memories of Edinburgh’s low drinking dens.«

Ian Rankin

An extract from Dead Interviews: With the help of a Ouija board, Ian Rankin summons the spirit of Arthur Conan Doyle to discuss Sherlock, Rebus, and the best way to kill off a character. Read more at The Telegraph.

»Cig 1

Auld Reekie . . . Edinburgh . . . brewers’ town, stinking of beer, whisky, tweeness, gentility, hypocrisy, corruption . . .«

In Saints of the Shadow Bible, Ian Rankin‘s detective is still reliable, but not as robust as he was, says Cecilia Grayson. Read more at The Spectator.

»One of the joys of Ian Rankin’s Rebus detective novels – apart from their intricate plotting and on-the-money descriptions of police procedures – is the soap opera: the complex interweaving of characters we have come to know and love, or, in some cases, to dislike or even hate, and sometimes love and hate together.«

Jack Kirchhoff

Quick-step prose: Jack Kirchhoff on the novel Saints of the Shadow Bible by Ian Rankin. His review at The Globe and Mail.

»Saints of the Shadow Bible is a clever, subtle read, but most of all, it’s a genuine pleasure to see Rebus back in the CID.«

Alison Flood

Ian Rankin‘s decision to bring John Rebus out of retirement to rake over the past was the right one, says Alison Flood. Her review of the novel Saints of the Shadow Bible by Mr. Rankin you can read at The Guardian.

»Die Annäherung an Malcolm Fox tut Rebus jedenfalls nicht gut, auch wenn es bisweilen großartige Dialoge gibt, weshalb Saints für alle Rebus-Freunde natürlich eine Pflichtlektüre ist.«

»Most surprising, perhaps, is the growing sense of implausibility as the stupid decisions of clever people turn the piece into an increasingly histrionic melodrama. Not even the best efforts of Beattie and a fine supporting cast can save this criminally misjudged experiment from itself.«

Mark Brown

It features fine performances, but Ian Rankin‘s debut play Dark Road is a criminally misjudged experiment, says Mark Brown. His review of the play at The Telegraph.

»Before that happens, though, he [Ian Rankin] has to deal with the launch of the latest Rebus book, Saints of the Shadow Bible (a quote from Leven’s song One Man, One Guitar) in November; and as we speak, he’s enjoying lunch on a break from rehearsing his first stage play, Dark Road, in the studio space across from Edinburgh’s Royal Lyceum Theatre.«

David Pollock

His Rebus novels have sold in their millions – now Ian Rankin is out to prove that his crime drama can work in the theatre and with a female sleuth. A portrait by David Pollock at The Independent.
