Ian Rankin: Here’s to Absent and Imaginary Friends

Even without a Rebus novel, Ian Rankin has had quite a year. The novel co-authored with William McIlvanney, The Dark Remains, hit the spot – both with McIlvanney aficionados and with Rankin’s legions of readers. Then he turned to television with the innovative series Murder Island, involving real-life amateur detectives. Now Rankin is finishing a new Rebus thriller. Join him as he discusses McIlvanney, Murder Island and imagining John Rebus afresh with Sam Baker.
