Publisher's Summary

Detective Inspector Siobhan Clarke is investigating the death of a senior lawyer during a robbery.
But the case becomes more complex when a note is discovered, indicating that this may have been no random attack. When local gangster Big Ger Cafferty receives an identical message, Clarke decides that the recently retired John Rebus may be able to help. He's the only man Cafferty will open up to, and together the two old adversaries might just stand a chance of saving Cafferty's skin.
But a notorious Glasgow crime family has arrived in Edinburgh, too, tailed by a team of undercover detectives. There's something they want, and they'll stop at nothing to get it. DI Malcolm Fox's job is to provide the undercover squad with local expertise, but he's soon drawn in too deep as the two cases look like colliding.
Meanwhile, an anonymous killer stalks the night-time streets, focussed on revenge. It's a game of dog eat dog in the city as in the wild. Even Dogs in ihe Wild brings back Ian Rankin's greatest characters in a story exploring the darkest corners of our instincts and desires.

Best Book yet!

If you could sum up Even Dogs in the Wild in three words, what would they be?

Wonderful character development - great plot!

What about James Macpherson’s performance did you like?

Love his voice!

Any additional comments?

I think perhaps this is Ian Rankin at his best!

Waste of time

Any additional comments?

This is the first Rankin I've read & I probably should've started with something earlier, because this was a lazy, predictable novel.

Everything Perfectly In Place

I think that many were unsure about Ian Rankin's decision to continue the series after Rebus retired, The mixed reaction to Standing in Another Man's Grave was understandable, the new juxtaposition of the characters felt uncomfortable, unsure and like the characters themselves we found it hard to get our heads round it all. Then Saints of the Shadow Bible saw a definite return to form but with this book Rankin has absolutely nailed it!

The adjusted roles of the characters feel very natural now. As elder statesmen of law enforcement and the criminal underworld Rebus and Big Ger Cafferty rub along with and against each other with a crackling chemistry. Clarke and Fox spread their wings further and the plot is a tense, multi-layered one populated by an excellent cast of rogues, villains and powerful enemies.

James Macpherson (who else could it have been?) purrs and growls his way through the plot evoking imagery of Edinburgh and its surrounds and of course Rankin's richly formed characters.

In summary, I have simply enjoyed this one as much as any other Rebus that has gone before and have turned from "concerned fan" to "eager consumer" once more.

Ian keeps it up<br />

Another superbly paced book with excellent narration right down to the gravely voice of villains.
