The Complaints is the story of Inspector Malcolm Fox, who works ‘Complaints and Conduct‘ (The Scottish equivalent of Internal Affairs). Fox’s sister’s boyfriend turns up dead, and Fox becomes a murder suspect. Fox gets suspended, but it doesn’t stop him from investigating. The deeper he goes the more he uncovers and the wider the plot becomes. Rankin writes a good story and the characters felt lifelike. However I don’t think police procedurals are my cup of tea.
