Crime writer Ian features in podcast

It’s well worth checking out an entertaining podcast interview with crime writer Ian Robinson ahead of his appearance at Kirkcudbright Book Week.

Having spent twenty-seven years in the Metropolitan Police, Ian is now a full-time writer. Six of his crime novels have been published and Rubicon is currently in development with the BBC for a six-part TV series.

In the interview by Book Week Society Chair Chris Walker and author Gerry Hassan, Ian talks about his passion for writing. You can hear the interview, and others in the series, at

Ian will feature in Book Week on Monday February 27 when Broughton House in High Street hosts Walk on the Dark Side, in which he will appear with fellow crime writers Jackie Baldwin, Ann Bloxwich and John Dean, who will explore the art of crime writing, illustrated through examples from their novels. The event starts at 7. 30pm and tickets are £7.
