The Dark Remains: Ian Rankin
Originally aired on October 30
Re-release November 30
Acclaimed Scottish author Ian Rankin, the recipient of four Crime Writers’ Association Dagger Awards, returns to the TIFA virtual stage to talk about his latest book, The Dark Remains. This prequel novel takes a look into DC Jack Laidlaw’s first-ever case as Glasgow’s original gritty detective. The story is a collaboration between Rankin and the legendary crime-writing legend William McIlvanney. When McIlvanney, the creator of the original Laidlaw series, passed away in 2015 with half a written manuscript, Rankin picked up the story and finished the novel, as a joint-force extraordinaire. Together, the bestselling thriller masters have brought the crime world of Glasgow to life once again.
