'Stunning black-and-white photography...A non-fiction work of intelligent analysis'
'Fascinating, as much for the revealing insight into the genesis of his characters, and an excellent collection of photographs...as for his personal views of Scotland and its people'
'Trish Malley and Ross Gillespie...provide a visual language to complement the dark and complex thoughts of Scotland's most famous sleuth'
'The autobiographical narrative of real Rankin is punctuated by the observations of unreal Rebus and are interwoven with acute and often wry tangential digressions on the nature of Scottishness. The formula works. Rebus 's myriad fans will be fascinated by the relationship between their hero and Rankin and general readers will find much to ponder over in Rankin's speculations about his own times and nation. The evocative photographs are a brilliant complement to the text'
