After an eventful career as a spin doctor to the powerful, rich and notorious, fifteen years ago Quintin Jardine found that his talents were equally well fitted to the world of crime fiction. Now he is the author of nine Oz Blackstone mysteries as well as sixteen Bob Skinner crime novels. His interests are playing football, watching football, talking about football and watching golf. He lives, as quietly as his nature will allow, in Scotland and in Spain.
aka Matthew Reid



I know this is a long and well respected series but it is going to have to get a lot better for me to stay with it long. I found the plot a little bit of a mess and the writing a little stiff. Skinner was also a little too perfect and the love interest wasn’t that interesting.

The first part of the book was better than the second and that will keep me going for at least one more book. I was hoping to love this series because I am caught up with Rankin and Oswald but I just barely got through it. More of a 2.5 star for me.… (lisätietoja)

Scottish chief inspector Skinner is in the USA when his inlaws are murdered leading to several other murders linked to an event in the 60's ( the kennedys) Back in Scotland other police are caught up in gangland murders and he can't help.
A plausible path of investigation and narative wanting me to explore Quintin Jardine again

The book starts off well with a serial killer on the loose in Edinburgh and a dubious suicide in Glasgow but rather than stay in the realms of a good murder mystery the plot takes a disappointing turn into international politics and intrigue featuring spies and assassins.

The characters are a bit one dimensional and I found myself not really caring about any of them.
