Rankin and Rebus had still not gripped the public consciousness and it's unlikely that either of these two books would have stood the test of time were it not for the books which followed, but this is the first occasion when it seems to have crossed Rankin's mind that he was actually writing crime rather than general fiction.Our Non-Fiction Range includes: Academic, Photography, Audio books, Business, Cook Books, Craft Books, Health and Fitness Books, Mind, Body, Spirit (Tarot).
