Description

Over the years, Ian Rankin has amassed an incredible portfolio of short stories. Published in crime magazines, composed for events, broadcast on radio, they all share the best qualities of his phenomenally popular mystery novels. 10 years ago, A Good Hanging - Ian's first short story collection - demonstrated this talent and now after nearly a decade at the top of popular fiction, Ian is releasing a follow-up. This is the third of three volumes on audio which include all twenty-one stories of the Beggars Banquet book, read unabridged. The Wider Scheme reveals more than first meets the eye. Unknown Pleasures looks at the new millennium from the dark side. Inspector Rebus investigates a blackmail in In The Frame. The Confession, which started out as a radio piece, is set in a police interview room. A hitman gets more than he bargained for in a crowded fairground in The Hanged Man. Rebus learns a thing or two from a veteran jailbreaker in Window of Opportunity. The Serpents Back explores the seedy side of Edinburgh in the 1790s. And in No Sanity Clause Rebus sees his girlfriend kissing Santa Claus. All bear the hallmark of great crime writing. The hugely versatile James Macpherson relishes the variety of characters.show more
