Hello Ian and welcome.

In this interview Ian Rankin gives a brief outline of his new Rebus book about the now retired policeman, who is now a consulting detective, looking into a cold case which becomes linked with an ongoing investigation that his old team are investigating. We also learn that Rebus was nearly never to be a series.
