'Scottish crime-writing at its finest, with a healthy dose of plot twists and turns, bodies and plenty of brutality' Sun

The gritty new mystery in Quintin Jardine's bestselling Bob Skinner series, set in Edinburgh and the Scottish countryside; not to be missed by readers of Ian Rankin and Peter May.

Nine years ago, divorcee Marcia Brown took her own life. A pillar of the community, she had been accused of theft, and it's assumed that she was unable to live with the shame. Now her former husband wants the case reopened. Marcia was framed, he says, to prevent her exposing a scandal. He wants justice for Marcia. And Alex Skinner, Solicitor Advocate, and daughter of retired Chief Constable Sir Robert Skinner, has taken on the brief, aided by her investigator Carrie McDaniels.

When tragedy strikes and his daughter comes under threat, Skinner steps in. His quarry is about to discover that the road to hell is marked by bad intentions . . .

'Skinner's lost none of his hard edge when he steps up to the plate after his daughter Alex, a legal eagle, is in trouble when a cold murder case explodes red hot and dangerous. Someone's going to meet his match in Skinner' Peterborough Evening Telegraph

'Well-constructed . . . intriguing' Scotland on Sunday

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Scottish crime-writing at its finest, with a healthy dose of plot twists and turns, bodies and plenty of brutality' * Sun *
'Jardine writes like he chews girders, but there's a subtlety too to his hard-edged crime thrillers that are very much in the vanguard of the tough but intelligent tartan noir movement . . . Skinner's lost none of his hard edge when he steps up to the plate after his daughter Alex, a legal eagle, is in trouble when a cold murder case explodes red hot and dangerous. Someone's going to meet his match in Skinner' * Peterborough Evening Telegraph *
'Well-constructed... intriguing' * Scotland on Sunday *
'The legendary Quintin Jardine . . . such a fine writer' * Denzil Meyrick *
