The Complaints

I just finished reading Ian Rankin, a brand new author for me. His book, The Complaints, is set in Scotland and the hero, Malcolm Fox, is an officer who investigates other police officers. In the US, such departments are called Internal Affairs, but in Scotland, they’re called Complaints. Just like in the US, they are not popular with their fellow officers. Malcolm is asked to start investigating an officer named Jamie Breck, who is supposed to be involved in child pornography. However, Jamie doesn’t seem the type. Then the live in boyfriend of Malcolm’s sister is murdered. Malcolm starts to break the rules that he expects other officers to follow and things get very interesting. I enjoyed the Scottish setting and the characters.
