Even Dogs in the Wild
Even Dogs in the Wild | Ian Rankin
11 posts | 12 read | 1 to read
Rebus comes out of retirement...to save his nemesis.Detective Inspector Siobhan Clarke is feeling the heat. She's investigating the death of a senior government prosecutor, David Minton, who has friends in high places. When one of their own is killed, the powers that be want answers fast. But Clarke is puzzled: if Minton died in a robbery as everyone thinks, why is nothing missing from his home? The answer may lie not in what was taken, but in what was left behind at the scene--an ominous note. Malcolm Fox is feeling useless. Shunned by his colleagues because of his past in the Complaints bureau, he's been reassigned to a grunt detail, helping a surveillance team--one that trusts him even less than his own boss does--track a notorious Glasgow crime family. Helping Clarke with the Minton case is the only thing that makes Fox feel like a real cop. Newly minted civilian John Rebus is feeling restless. Being a cop is in his blood and he's failing miserably at retirement. So when Clarke and Fox ask for his help, Rebus doesn't need long to consider his options. But before he can get his bearings, a call comes from Rebus's old nemesis--"Big Ger" Cafferty. Someone just fired a bullet through his front window--and sent him a note identical to Minton's. The normally unflappable old gangster is on edge, but for the life of him Cafferty can't figure out who he's wronged. And the only man he trusts with his life is Rebus. As the cases collide, it's up to Clarke, Fox, and Rebus to connect the dots and save their unlikely ally Cafferty, whose past harbors a shocking secret that implicates Minton's friends in an unspeakable crime. Even Dogs in the Wild reunites crime fiction legend Ian Rankin's greatest characters in an explosive story exploring the darkest corners of our desires.

I feel like I‘m ready to read all the thriller/mystery books in the world at the moment. So happy I‘ve found many new fantastic sounding series, but I still have some “good old friends” to turn to. ❤️🙂

PerksOfBeingABookworm I‘m on a thriller/mystery kick too! Just finished reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows last night. The semester is over, so I have plenty of time to read as many thrillers as I can! I hope you read some good ones. 11mo

#audiopuzzling with John Rebus, Siobhan Clark and Malcolm Fox.

I was very pleased with this one. The last charity shop puzzle was rather disappointing: really difficult pattern and too many pieces missing.

merelybookish Looks great! I always do a puzzle at Xmas. 12mo

I struggled with this but it's probably because it's my first Ian Rankin book and this particular book was number 20 in the series, I shall try the first book in the series and see how I get on from there.

My #24in48 closing survey. I have no suggestions for the organizers, so I decided to focus on what worked or didn't work for me personally.

Another solid installment in the series. Fox is integrated more into the fold after leaving the Complaints. Once I've read the entire series, I'll reread them in order.

Another book down for #24in48. There wasn't much left to read in this one. So far during the readathon I have finished off two books and read a third in its entirety.

Now this one, I tried to read slow because I like Rebus, cranky retired policeman, back on a case as a consultant to Shiobhan. Big Ger is back too! Settled in with tea and biscuits and cigarettes pretending I was in the Kingdom of Edinburgh

What do you do when your most famous detective reaches retirement? You bring him back... Rankin loves his ACD, so of course Rebus comes back. I realised a while back that I read Rebus for the ongoing storyline, not the individual cases. This was a dark, tight delight.

Got trapped in a bookshop by a hailstorm yesterday afternoon and spotted new Rebus is in paperback now. Already 132 pages in.
