This evocative and stunningly produced CD highlights the places that inspired the settings for the Inspector Rebus novels. It is a fascinating insight into the mind of Rebus' creator Ian Rankin, revealing how Scotland, and in particular Edinburgh, has influenced his writing. James Macpherson, award-winning reader of the Rebus audiobooks, reads the extracts from the books here, whilst the personal journey contained in the book itself is, of course, narrated by its author. Shortlisted for the Storanenso Design and Production British Book Trade Award 2006.
