If Ian Rankin is the Robert Carlyle of Scottish crime writers, then Jardine is surely its Sean Connery
Very engaging as well as ingenious, and the unraveling of the mystery is excellently done
Another powerful tartan noir that packs a punch
Gritty cop drama that makes Taggart look tame
I love the Bob Skinner novels. Quintin Jardine's slick and suspenseful Edinburgh-set series has never failed to keep me riveted...starts with a bang and doesn't let up till the last sentence
Remarkably assured, raw-boned, a tour de force
Another cracker from Jardine...There are plenty of twists and turns along the way to keep you engrossed
Praise for Quintin Jardine's novels: 'Well constructed, fast-paced, Jardine's narrative has many an ingenious twist and turn'
