Description

THE DARKEST DEEDS ARE HIDDEN FROM SIGHT . . .

Bob Skinner is back in the latest gritty mystery in Quintin Jardine's bestselling series, not to be missed by readers of Ian Rankin and Peter May.


New Year's Day, and Edinburgh lies sleeping. But two men will never wake again . . .

When struggling ex-copper Terry Coats was discovered in bed with an air hostess, his excuse that he was 'going undercover' cut no ice with the force - or his wife. But now he's been brutally killed on Hogmanay night, it seems there may have been more to his plea.

Dragged from the New Year celebrations, Special Constable Sir Bob Skinner is shocked to find Coats' body alongside that of Griff Montell: his erstwhile prot g , and former lover of Skinner's own daughter, Alex. Could there be some dark truth under Coats' cock-and-bull story, after all?

As the secrets start unravelling, Skinner realises he has gravely underestimated someone close to him - and the effects will cost him, and those he loves, dear . . .

Praise for Jardine's gripping mysteries:

'The legendary Quintin Jardine . . . such a fine writer' Denzil Meyrick

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

'Another powerful tartan noir that packs a punch' Peterborough Evening Telegraph

'Incredibly difficult to put the book down . . . a guide through a world of tangled family politics, hostile takeovers, government-sanctioned killing, extortion and the seedier side of publishing . . . Quintin Jardine should be . . . your first choice!' Scots magazine

'Well constructed, fast-paced, Jardine's narrative has many an ingenious twist and turn' Observer
