The Complaints: that''s the name given to the Internal Affairs department who seek out dirty and compromised cops, the ones who''ve made deals with the devil. And sometimes The Complaints must travel.
A major inquiry into a neighboring police force sees Malcolm Fox and his colleagues cast adrift, unsure of territory, protocol, or who they can trust. An entire station-house looks to have been compromised, but as Fox digs deeper he finds the trail leads him back in time to the suicide of a prominent politician and activist. There are secrets buried in the past, and reputations on the line.
In his newest pulse-pounding thriller, Ian Rankin holds up a mirror to an age of fear and paranoia, and shows us something of our own lives reflected there.

Annotation:
This is Ian Rankin's second book starring the honorable and hard-working Endinburgh police officer Malcom Fox, who has stepped in since Rankin brought his very popular Inspector Rebus series to a close. And, as often happens in a character's second documented adventure, Fox can stretch out a bit and really be himself. Here his assignment is to investigate a crooked fellow cop. Fife detective Paul Carter has been accused of pulling strings to get out of a sexual assault charge. When Carter's uncle turns up dead, the mystery condenses. The details of this murder also connect with a case that has been left unsolved since the 1980s involving the murder of a lawyer who was affiliated with Scottish nationalists.
