Private Investigations is Quintin Jardine's twenty-sixth Bob Skinner mystery that sees the Edinburgh sleuth plunged into a gruelling new case in which no score will go unsettled. A thrilling mystery for fans of Ian Rankin and Peter Robinson.

Former Chief Constable Bob Skinner has uncovered his fair share of shocking crime scenes over his thirty-year career. But none could prepare him for the sight he finds stowed in the back of a stolen car that collides with his on the outskirts of Edinburgh.

As his former colleagues investigate, Skinner takes on an unusual commission of his own.

The body count rises, motives appear, the hunt goes global, and potential conflicts surface. In his new guise, is Skinner is on the side of the angels...or working against them?

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Quintin Jardine: 'If Ian Rankin is the Robert Carlyle of Scottish crime writers, then Jardine is surely its Sean Connery' * Glasgow Herald *
Deplorably readable * Guardian *
Very engaging as well as ingenious, and the unraveling of the mystery is excellently done -- Allan Massie * Scotsman *
Remarkably assured, raw-boned, a tour de force * New York Times *
Well constructed, fast-paced, Jardine's narrative has many an ingenious twist and turn * Observer *
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 *
Gritty cop drama that makes Taggart look tame * Northern Echo *
More twists and turns than TV's Taggart at its best * Stirling Observer *
Compelling stuff * Oxford Times *
