Ian Rankin
Friday 9th December 2016 at 7:30 PM
Tickets: £5

No Alibis Bookstore is very pleased to invite you to spend an evening with Ian Rankin, to celebrate the launch of his new Rebus novel, Rather Be The Devil, on Friday 9th December at 7:30PM. This event will take place at 101 Donegall Street, Redeemer Central Church. Tickets for this event will go on sale at 10:00am on Monday 31st October, and people wishing to attend will have two options:

Admission: £5 per ticket (or £5.50 via Paypal)

Admission + SIGNED FIRST EDITION copy of RATHER BE THE DEVIL: £20 per ticket (or £20.50 via PayPal)

Some cases never leave you.

For John Rebus, forty years may have passed, but the death of beautiful, promiscuous Maria Turquand still preys on his mind. Murdered in her hotel room on the night a famous rock star and his entourage were staying there, Maria's killer has never been found.

Meanwhile, the dark heart of Edinburgh remains up for grabs. A young pretender, Darryl Christie, may have staked his claim, but a vicious attack leaves him weakened and vulnerable, and an inquiry into a major money laundering scheme threatens his position. Has old-time crime boss Big Ger Cafferty really given up the ghost, or is he biding his time until Edinburgh is once more ripe for the picking?

In a tale of twisted power, deep-rooted corruption and bitter rivalries, Rather Be the Devil showcases Rankin and Rebus at their unstoppable best.
