Praise for EVEN DOGS IN THE WILD:
A "twisty, darkly topical, and immaculately executed tale of Edinburgh's underbelly."―The Guardian
"It is sensational...this story truly sings."―Vick Mickunas, Dayton Daily News
"Rankin is a past master of atmospheric, dark crime fiction, and in Even Dogs in the Wild, his 31st book, he's in top form."―Collette Bancroft, Tampa Bay Times
"As always, Rankin delivers some fascinating procedural details, but the heart of the book--and its main appeal to crime-fiction readers--lies in the evolving personal relationships between the three cops and one bad guy. The switching of roles between Rebus and Clark continues to intrigue, but even better is the transformation of Fox from a behind-the-scenes guy...into a real cop working the mean streets."―Booklist
"It's always intriguing to follow Rebus around the city and country he loves, and for those who have followed his long career the pleasures are even richer."―Michele Ross, The Cleveland Plain Dealer
"Rankin's procedurals are strong, well-constructed, page-turning mysteries, and his latest is no exception."
―San Francisco Chronicle

They were old men now, similar builds, similar backgrounds. Sat together in a pub, the casual onlooker might mistake them for pals who'd known one another since school.

Clarke's been investigating the death of a senior lawyer whose body was found along with a threatening note. On the other side of Edinburgh, Big Ger Cafferty - Rebus's long-time nemesis - has received an identical note and a bullet through his window. Now it's up to Clarke and Rebus to connect the dots and stop a killer. Meanwhile, DI Malcolm Fox joins forces with a covert team from Glasgow who are tailing a notorious crime family. There's something they want, and they'll stop at nothing to get it. It's a game of dog eat dog - in the city, as in the wild.
