Over the years, Ian Rankin has amassed an incredible portfolio of short stories. Published in crime magazines, composed for events, broadcast on radio, they all share the best qualities of his phenomenally popular mystery novels. A GOOD HANGING - Ian's first short story collection - demonstrated this talent and BEGGAR'S BANQUET is the eagerly awaited follow-up.

Ranging from the macabre (THE HANGED MAN) to the unfortunate (THE ONLY TRUE COMEDIAN) right back to the sinister (SOMEONE GOT TO EDDIE) they all bear the hallmark of great crime writing.

I don't care for the short stories, I had found. Few are good, the rest are forgettable. Best to stick to the full-book stories.
