Rebus: Fleshmarket Close
2.30PM, RADIO 4
A body, with multiple stab wounds, is found on a sink estate in Edinburgh. Then, two skeletons are found in the cellar of the city’s Old Town, and the teenage sister of a rape victim goes missing. Nothing here, then, to lift the permanent world-weary expression on the face of DI John Rebus (Ron Donachie) in this two-part adaptation of Mary Berry (10am, Radio 2) another of Ian Rankin’s gloomy Scottish detective novels.
