On November 16th at CUFFED Vancouver International Crime Fiction Festival, the author Ian Rankin launched his new Rebus novel EVEN DOGS IN THE WILD. In the new book Detective Inspector Siobhan Clarke is investigating the death of a senior lawyer during a robbery. But the case becomes more complex when a note is discovered indicating that this may have been no random attack. When local gangster Ger Cafferty receives an identical message, Clarke decides that the recently retired John Rebus may be able to help. He's the only man Cafferty will open up to, and together the two old adversaries might just stand a chance of saving Cafferty's skin.

Over 580 people attended the event and Ian had the audience hanging on his every word. The venue was brilliant - perfect acoustics and somehow very suitable to Rankin's characters. Check out the photos below!
