LoveReading View on The Impossible Dead

June 2012 Book of the Month.

Rankin is synonymous with crime and Edinburgh and having decided to end it with his long-time protagonist – Rebus – he has successfully created a new one in the form of Edinburgh copper, Malcolm Fox.  He’s very different from Rebus in many ways and that’s a good thing and coupled with that, Rankin’s ability to portray Edinburgh remains undiminished and his cleverly wrought plots really get under your skin. The first featuring Fox was The Complaints – maximum stars from us – and now Fox who is part of the unpopular Complaints & Conduct department of the police force that roots out corruption in the force and investigates suspect officers is on to his next case in which he must fight for his professional and personal life.

 

Shortlisted for the Galaxy Crime  & Thriller of the Year Award 2011.

 

Rebus is back!
After an absence of five years Rebus will be returning in a new novel, Standing in Another Man's Grave, which will be published in November 2012.

The Impossible Dead Synopsis

Malcolm Fox and his team are back, investigating whether fellow cops covered up for Detective Paul Carter. Carter has been found guilty of misconduct, but what should be a simple job is soon complicated by a brutal murder and a weapon that should not even exist. A trail of revelations leads Fox back to 1985, a year of desperate unrest when letter-bombs and poisonous spores were sent to government offices, and kidnappings and murders were plotted. But while the body count rises the clock starts ticking, and a dramatic turn of events sees Fox in mortal danger.
