Ian Rankin writes the John Rebus novels, set in Edinburgh. After a short spell in Fife’s second-best punk band (1978-79) Ian studied English Literature, became a London-based hi-fi reviewer, moved to France and started a long career as a novelist. He may currently be the vocalist in the band Best Picture, if they’ve not kicked him out. His latest novel, In A House of Lies, was published in October. Unusually, it doesn’t take its title from a song or album. He made Sue Lawley listen to Mogwai when he was on Desert Island Discs.
