Notă biografică

Ian Rankin is an internationally #1 bestselling novelist and the recipient of an Edgar Award, a Gold Dagger for fiction, a Diamond Dagger for career excellence, and the Chandler-Fulbright Award. He lives in Edinburgh, Scotland, with his wife.



"Rankin is an expert at manipulating multiple plots...Along with his plotting prowess, Rankin has cultivated a fluid style that accommodates mordant cop talk, coarse gangster lingo and the occasional honest expression of compassion."
Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review
"Rather Be the Devil will not disappoint - in the last 30 pages or so, Rankin delivers so many shocking but
satisfying twists I felt I might have whiplash."—Tampa Bay Times

The Seattle Review of Books

"[A] finely crafted new entry...[Rankin] is as tireless in delivering the goods as his creation is in solving tough cases."
"With its trademark blend of sharp wit and even sharper police work, this entry is yet another example of why Rankin remains in the top echelon of Scottish crime writers."
Publishers Weekly
"One of the best things in crime fiction for years, but Rankin kicks it up several notches here."

Booklist (Starred Review)

"This may be the author's 21st series outing, but the thrill is still fresh."
Library Journal

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
