Ian Rankin, best-selling Scottish crime writer and OBE recipient, discusses his latest Rebus novel, Rather be the Devil, and three decades of his much-loved detective with Australia’s Gold Dagger winning crime writer Michael Robotham.
Rebus may have retired but that doesn’t stop him revisiting the cold case of the beautiful, promiscuous Maria Turquand who was murdered forty years ago in her hotel room the night a famous rock star and his entourage were staying there. Turquand’s killer has never been found.
This exciting discussion will be led by Robotham, who started his career as a journalist but then became a ghost-writer, writing many bestselling autobiographies in collaboration with politicians, pop stars, psychologists, adventurers and show business personalities.
