The Impossible Dead

The Impossible Dead - Ian Rankin It's always a pleasure to go back to lowland Scotland with Rankin, and this outing included trips to some rather familiar spots in Fife. I'm somewhat more convinced of Fox as a protagonist this time around (even though I still miss Rebus); he shows some real gnarliness as the Complaints chap who really needs to be in homicide instead, and will persist in his investigations despite the brass.

I had no idea my native land was such a scary place during the separatist years! This novel has a nice buried cold case and reference to some real, and bizarre, historical goings-on with biological weaponry.

I'll come along for the ride with Malcolm Fox. He's getting interesting.
