Review quote

'This evocative book reveals the inspiration behind the settings for the Rebus books, as well as Rankin's own deeply personal relationship with Scotland. Effortlessly blending Rankin's autobiograpy with Rebus's biography, from the author's rural childhood, through the streets of Edinburgh, to explanations of in-jokes and Rebus's complex make-up, we are lead through a starkly beautiful Scotland unseen by most' GOOD BOOK GUIDE 'Evocative text and stunning photographs highlight a Scotland that tourists never see' TRAVELLER MAGAZINE
