Ian Rankin‘s The Impossible Dead, featured in our December Whodunit column, is the second book in his new series starring Edinburgh cop Malcolm Fox, who investigates corrupt police officers. Columnist Bruce Tierney says it’s packed with “fascinating backstory, compelling characters and some sly social commentary.”
Now, we’re continuing the conversation in honor of Fox’s second tale. Rankin answered some great questions such as this one:
Would you make a good cop?
I would make a terrible cop. I don’t work well as part of a team, and don’t take well to being told what to do by those in positions senior to mine. (I know this from past experience.) So I would have to be a maverick, and the real-life police have little patience with those.
