John Rebus is one of the most famous detectives in crime fiction. The creation of Scottish writer Ian Rankin, the hard-drinking, hard-smoking Inspector Rebus has been solving crimes in his own, not quite by the book, way for 25 years. He’s also earned Rankin a slew of international literary and academic honors, as well as an OBE from Queen Elizabeth in 2002.
