The creator of TV detective John Rebus was in Spalding to meet fans and sign copies of his latest adventure.


Award-winning author Ian Rankin was a guest at Bookmark in The Crescent where he met dozens of Rebus readers who have tracked the fictional detective through 19 novels written over the last 26 years.
Rankin said: “Rebus is a flawed, complex individual who’s very human, but he’s also the kind of guy you’d want on your side if you had a problem.”
