The Complaints Summary

The Complaints by Ian Rankin

'Unmissable Rankin, as gripping and involving as any Rebus story' CHOICE; 'A brilliant book' GUARDIAN

From the No.1 bestselling author of A SONG FOR THE DARK TIMES

'On the evidence of THE COMPLAINTS it looks as if Fox will be just as sure-footed a guide to the city as his grizzled predecessor' DAILY EXPRESS.

Nobody likes The Complaints - they're the cops who investigate other cops. Complaints and Conduct Department, to give them their full title, but known colloquially as 'the Dark Side', or simply 'The Complaints'. Malcolm Fox works for The Complaints. He's just had a result, and should be feeling good about himself. But he's middle-aged, sour and unwell. He also has a father in a care home and a sister who persists in an abusive relationship.

In the midst of an aggressive Edinburgh winter, the reluctant Fox is given a new task. There's a cop called Jamie Breck, and he's dirty. Problem is, no one can prove it. But as Fox takes on the job, he learns that there's more to Breck than anyone thinks. This knowledge will prove dangerous, especially when murder intervenes.

The Complaints Reviews

'If you haven't tried Rankin, this is an excellent place to start.' -- Sarah Broadhurst SUNDAY TIMES 'Ian Rankin efficiently exorcises the ghost of Rebus in this post-Rebus stand-alone novel, set in the police complaints department in a recession-riven Edinburgh' METRO 'Another slick crime caper from a master at the top of his game' (4 stars) NEWS OF THE WORLD 'a familiar Rankin blend of whodunnit, workplace soap opera and a spiky guide to Edinburgh, handled with flair and finesse. With The Complaints, the author conclusively shows that he can put together a satisfyingly complex detetective story without a Rolling Stones-loving, former SAS sleuth at its centre' -- John Dugdale SUNDAY TIMES 'The first Rankin novel featuring Edinburgh policeman, Malcolm Fox, a very different character from DI Rebus, who works for the unpopular Complaints & Conduct department of the Edinburgh force' GOOD BOOK GUIDE 'Ian Rankin showed their was life after Rebus by creating a new set of Scottish police characters in the very satisfying THE COMPLAINTS' DEADLY PLEASURES
