The Impossible Dead

By Ian Rankin

Again, another excellent story by the man who ranks highly in my esteem and that of others.

The Impossible Dead follows Malcom Fox and his team of Internal Affairs. They’ve been sent to Fife to investigate whether fellow cops covered up for a corrupt colleague. But what should be a simple job is soon complicated by intimations and cover-up. A brutal murder has long lain hidden and it looks like it was committed with a weapon that should not even exist.

Fox feels he has a duty to get at the truth but when the body count rises the clock starts ticking, and he has no choice but to fight back when a dramatic turn of events sees him in mortal danger.
