Reviews

Compelling stuff
Oxford Times
A complex and suspenseful saga that never flags from start to finish
Bolton Evening News
Praise for Quintin Jardine's previous novels: 'If Ian Rankin is the Robert Carlyle of Scottish crime writers, then Jardine is surely its Sean Connery'
Glasgow Herald
More twists and turns than TV's Taggart at its best
Stirling Observer
Very engaging as well as ingenious, and the unraveling of the mystery is excellently done
Allan Massie, Scotsman
Well constructed, fast-paced, Jardine's narrative has many an ingenious twist and turn
Observer
Gritty cop drama that makes Taggart look tame
Northern Echo
If you're looking for a detective whose personal life is as active, contradictory and complicated as his job then follow the Edinburgh exploits of Deputy Chief Constable Bob Skinner in Quintin Jardine's Skinner series
Radio 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
Globe and Mail
Deplorably readable
Guardian
Another cracker from Jardine... Plenty of twists and turns along the way to keep you engrossed
Scots Magazine
Remarkably assured, raw-boned, a tour de force

A Scottish Alex Cross .... Brilliantly written to leave you guessing right up to the end
