Standing in Another Man’s Grave by Ian Rankin
Meet Ian Rankin, one of the world’s most famous crime fiction writers, in conversation with Colin Steele.
Ian’s new book, Standing in Another Man’s Grave, sees the return of his detective, John Rebus, five years after Rebus’s retirement. Not only is Rebus as stubborn and anarchic as ever, but he finds himself in trouble with Rankin’s latest creation, Malcolm Fox of Edinburgh’s internal affairs unit. Added to which, Rebus may be about to derail the career of his ex-colleague Siobhan Clarke, while himself being permanently derailed by mob boss and old adversary Big Ger Cafferty.
Speaker/Host: Ian Rankin, crime writer
Venue: Theatre 1, Manning Clark Centre, Union Court, ANU
Date: Monday, 19 November 2012
Time: 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM
