Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[A] twisty, darkly topical, and immaculately executed tale of Edinburgh’s underbelly.” Guardian (London)
“Rankin’s procedurals are strong, well-constructed, page-turning mysteries, and his latest is no exception.” San Francisco Chronicle
“It’s always intriguing to follow Rebus around the city and country he loves, and for those who have followed his long career the pleasures are even richer.” Cleveland Plain Dealer
“Rankin is a past master of atmospheric, dark crime fiction, and in Even Dogs in the Wild, his thirty-first book, he’s in top form.” Tampa Bay Times
“It is sensational…this story truly sings.” Dayton Daily News
“Rankin delivers some fascinating procedural details, but the heart of the book…lies in the evolving personal relationships between the three cops and one bad guy. The switching of roles between Rebus and Clark continues to intrigue, but even better is the transformation of Fox from a behind-the-scenes guy…into a real cop working the mean streets.” Booklist
“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…Macpherson has performed many of the Rebus pantheon and knows his actors…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.” AudioFile
“Complex…The interwoven plot…provides surprises as unlikely allies uncover details of an old, sordid crime…Intriguing.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
