Ian Rankin talks to Phill Jupitus at the Edinburgh International Book Festival

Since Ian Rankin’s appearance at last year’s Book Festival, his iconic detective Rebus has made his stage debut in Long Shadows and is set to star in a television series by Black Watch playwright Gregory Burke. Rankin’s latest, In a House of Lies, is a smart procedural set in Edinburgh’s imaginary underworld. We mark the paperback’s arrival – and hear hints of what’s next – in this session filmed live at the 2019 Edinburgh International Book Festival with the bestselling author and comedian Phil Jupitus.
