Reviews

Another cracker from Jardine...There are plenty of twists and turns along the way to keep you engrossed
Scots Magazine

Glasgow Herald
Praise for Quintin Jardine's novels: 'Well constructed, fast-paced, Jardine's narrative has many an ingenious twist and turn'
Observer
Very engaging as well as ingenious, and the unraveling of the mystery is excellently done
Scotsman
Deplorably readable
Guardian
Remarkably assured, raw-boned, a tour de force
New York Times
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
The Globe and Mail
Gritty cop drama that makes Taggart look tame
Northern Echo
Another powerful tartan noir that packs a punch
