Fleshmarket Alley – Ian Rankin

200px-ianrankin.jpgOver the years at least a half dozen people have recommended the Scottish author Ian Rankin.

I’ve just finished listening to one of his books on MP3. Excellent.

Rankin is a “grape-picker, swineherd, taxman, alcohol researcher, hi-fi journalist, college secretary and punk musician” turned writer.

Fleshmarket Close is a 2004 novel … named after a real close off Edinburgh’s Royal Mile. It is the fifteenth of the Inspector Rebus novels. It was released in the USA under the title Fleshmarket Alley. It was the second episode in the second Rebus television series starring Ken Stott, airing in 2006.

I’d like to see that BBC production. Rebus is a compelling, complex character.
