Ian Rankin on NPR

Yesterday’s NPR interview with Ian Rankin is going to add another book to my TBR pile.  I’ve heard of him but haven’t read anything by him.

The title of his newest book is The Complaints and features an internal affairs police officer, Malcolm Fox.  He sounds like a straitlaced sort of guy trying to do what’s expected of him to the best of his ability.  Rankin mentioned people seemed to like Fox even though he’s very different from his famous Detective Inspector Rebus. 

Thinking about it, there are some people who want such a character right now.  People will always use books to escape from their ordinary lives but isn’t it nice to have a character who could be someone who lives on your street?
