June enjoyed this book, which can be found on the shelves, or reserved at, Low Fell Library.

Retirement doesn’t suit John Rebus. He wasn’t made for hobbies, holidays or home improvements. Being a cop is in his blood. So when DI Siobhan Clarke asks for help on a case, Rebus doesn’t need long to consider his options.

Clarke has 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 is 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.

Even Dogs in the Wild brings back Ian Rankin’s greatest characters in a story exploring the darkest corners of our instincts and desires.
