Με τα χέρια στις τσέπες, ο Ρέμπους γύρισε για να αντικρίσει τον Κάφερτι. Ήταν γέροι πια, παρόμοια κοψιά, παρόμοια καταγωγή. Εάν κάθονταν μαζί σε μια παμπ, μπορεί κάποιος τυχαίος παρατηρητής να τους περνούσε για φίλους που γνωρίζονταν από το σχολείο. Το παρελθόν τους, όμως, έλεγε μια διαφορετική ιστορία. Η αποστρατεία δεν ταιριάζει στον Τζον Ρέμπους. Δεν είναι φτιαγμένος για χόμπι και διακοπές. Η δουλειά του αστυνομικού κυλάει στις φλέβες του. Έτσι, όταν η επιθεωρήτρια Σιβόν Κλαρκ ζητά τη βοήθειά του σε μια υπόθεση, δεν του παίρνει πολύ χρόνο να αποφασίσει. Η Κλαρκ ερευνά τον θάνατο ενός μεγαλοδικηγόρου, το πτώμα του οποίου βρέθηκε μαζί με ένα απειλητικό σημείωμα. Στην άλλη πλευρά του Εδιμβούργου, ο Μπιγκ Τζερ Κάφερτι –η νέμεση του Ρέμπους από τα παλιά– έχει λάβει ένα πανομοιότυπο σημείωμα και μία σφαίρα μέσα από το τζάμι του παραθύρου του. Τώρα, εξαρτάται από την Κλαρκ και τον Ρέμπους να ενώσουν τις κουκκίδες και να σταματήσουν τον δολοφόνο. Στο μεταξύ, ο επιθεωρητής Μάλκολμ Φοξ ενώνει τις δυνάμεις του με μια μυστική ομάδα από τη Γλασκώβη που παρακολουθεί μια διαβόητη φαμίλια του υποκόσμου. Κάτι θέλουν και δεν θα σταματήσουν πουθενά μέχρι να το αποκτήσουν… Ο Ian Rankin επαναφέρει τους σπουδαιότερους χαρακτήρες του σε μια ιστορία που διερευνά τις πιο σκοτεινές γωνιές των ενστίκτων και των επιθυμιών μας.

This state-of-the-art book explores the implications of contemporary trends that are shaping the future of museum experiences. In four separate sections, it looks into how museums are developing dialogical relationships with their audiences, reaching out beyond their local communities to involve more diverse and broader audiences. It examines current practices in involving crowds, not as passive audiences but as active users, co-designers and co-creators; it looks critically and reflectively at the design implications raised by the application of novel technologies, and by museums becoming parts of connected museum systems and large institutional ecosystems. Overall, the book chapters deal with aspects such as sociality, creation and sharing as ways of enhancing dialogical engagement with museum collections. They address designing experiences – including participatory exhibits, crowd sourcing and crowd mining – that are meaningful and rewarding for all categories of audiences involved. Museum Experience Design reflects on different approaches to designing with novel technologies and discusses illustrative and diverse roles of technology, both in the design process as well as in the experiences designed through those processes. The trend of museums becoming embedded in ecosystems of organisations and people is dealt with in chapters that theoretically reflect on what it means to design for ecosystems, illustrated by design cases that exemplify practical and methodological issues in doing so. Written by an interdisciplinary group of design researchers, this book is an invaluable source of inspiration for researchers, students and professionals working in this dynamic field of designing experiences for and around museums.
