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 Rebus novels. Ranging from the macabre ('The Hanged Man') to the unfortunate ('The Only True Comedian') right back to the sinister ('Someone Got To Eddie') they all bear the hallmark of great crime writing. Of even more interest to his many fans, Ian includes seven Inspector Rebus stories in this collection...
The beggars banquet is a feast of Rankin short stories. Each story an enthralling tale, with great characters, and a brilliant twist at the end.
For me James Macpherson's voice compliments these (mostly Edinburgh) based tales superbly, even his english accent works quite well.
Well worth a credit - and multiple listens
