The Impossible Dead | [Ian Rankin]

The Impossible Dead

The Complaints: that's the name given to the Internal Affairs department who seek out dirty and compromised cops, the ones who've made deals with the devil. And sometimes The Complaints must travel. A major inquiry into a neighboring police force sees Malcolm Fox and his colleagues cast adrift, unsure of territory, protocol, or who they can trust. An entire station-house looks to have been compromised, but as Fox digs deeper, he finds the trail leads him back in time to the suicide of a prominent politician and activist.

Publisher's Summary

The Complaints: that's the name given to the Internal Affairs department that seeks out dirty and compromised cops, the ones who've made deals with the devil. And sometimes, The Complaints must travel.

A major inquiry into a neighboring police force sees Malcolm Fox and his colleagues cast adrift, unsure of territory, protocol, or who they can trust. An entire station-house looks to have been compromised, but as Fox digs deeper, he finds the trail leads him back in time to the suicide of a prominent politician and activist. There are secrets buried in the past, and reputations on the line.

In his newest pulse-pounding thriller, Ian Rankin holds up a mirror to an age of fear and paranoia, and shows us something of our own lives reflected there.

    "It's Not a Popularity Contest"

    It's not fun being the guy who investigates bad cops. But Malcolm Fox has a job to do, and he isn't going to be put off by being stuck in a small closet for his interviews, or the time wasting delays put in his path. I like Fox. He keeps his focus is clear and uncomplicated. And I loved the narrator. Peter Forbes' many accents subtly change for each character. Just a pleasure to listen to, and definitely enhances the story.

    "Pretty good mystery by a great author"

    Not as compelling as the Rebus stories, but nonetheless interesting and well written. Good vocal performance as always by Peter Forbes.
