Event #10: Vancouver Noir – Sunday, March 13, 7:00 to 8:00 pm
Dietrich`s publisher will be releasing his third novel `Triggerfish` soon, but he has already become part of a strong cadre of Vancouver Noir writers. He sets his stories on the streets of Vancouver and other locales around the Lower Mainland. Like his previous book `The Deadbeat Club` which included Whistler as its setting, local readers will find descriptions familiar and his skill with dialogue and creating bad guys is reminiscent of Laurence Gough. The National Post said about `The Deadbeat Club`…This book deserves to be something of a breakout for Kalteis who does for Vancouver and Whistler what George V. Higgins does for Boston and Jean-Claude Izzo does for Marseille. He animates familiar streets with excitement, crime and appealing characters, providing readers with a most entertaining tourist manual.
