Description

Even Dogs in the Wild brings back Ian Rankin's greatest characters in a novel that explores the darkest corners of our instincts and desires. Detective Inspector Siobhan Clarke is investigating the death of a senior lawyer during a robbery. The case becomes more complex when a note is discovered, indicating that this may have been no random attack. When local gangster Big Ger Cafferty receives an identical message, Clarke decides that the recently retired John Rebus may be able to help. Together the two old adversaries might just stand a chance of saving Cafferty's skin. But a notorious family tailed by a team of undercover detectives has also arrived in Edinburgh. There's something they want, and they'll stop at nothing to get it. As the cases collide, it's a game of dog eat dog--in the city as in the wild.

Professional reviews

"Retired Edinburgh Inspector John Rebus is back in the detecting game, and, thanks to narrator James Macpherson, he sounds as brilliant and curmudgeonly as ever. This time he helps a former subordinate learn who is shooting famous politicians and equally famous crooks. Macpherson has performed many of the Rebus pantheon and knows his actors--growly Rebus, crisp Detective Inspector Siobhan Clarke, snooty political bosses, and a host of other Scottish high- and low-life characters. He has a way with pacing as well; conversations move with realistic rhythm, barroom sections have the temper of single-malt whiskey, and action sequences are rat-a-tat-tat. You may need to listen intently for the first half-hour to understand the Scottish accents. Stick with it. You'll be amply rewarded. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
