Inhaltsangabe

Malcolm Fox and his team are back. They've been sent to Fife to investigate whether fellow cops covered up for a corrupt colleague, Detective Paul Carter. Carter has been found guilty of misconduct with his own uncle, also in the force, having proved to be his nemesis. But what should be a simple job is soon complicated by intimations of conspiracy - and a brutal murder committed with a weapon that should not even exist.

The spiralling investigation takes Fox back to 1985, a year of turmoil in British political life. Terrorists intent on a split between Scotland and the rest of the UK were becoming more ruthless, sending letter-bombs and poisonous spores to government offices, plotting kidnaps and murder, and trying to stay one step ahead of the spies sent to find them. Fox has a duty to get at the truth, while the body count rises, the clock starts ticking, and he fights for his professional and personal life.

Crime novel with a social-political background

I liked the first Malcolm Fox novel ("The Complaints"), and this is a good sequel. It has the same slow-moving scenario, full of steps forward as well as backward, awkward logic, guesses and intuitive reasoning, as it would be in a real life rather than a 45 mins action movie where everything naturely comes to a logical end. The story spins not only around the main character, internal complaints inspector Malcolm Fox (whose depiction remains a little lifeless still), but also gives sufficient room to the story, the background, the social colouring, which altogether always keeps it from becoming stereotypical.
That's why I'd prefer Malcolm Fox even to his famous predecessor, Inspector Rebus.
