In Edinburgh's old Parliament House, an armed robbery trial is about to take a macabre turn. While the lawyers tussle over the evidence, the judge suddenly collapses in agony - the victim of an apparent heart attack. For Deputy Chief Constable Bob Skinner, with his life finally back on track after the near-collapse of his marriage, the last thing he needs is to be faced with the most baffling case of his career. But as the wave of brutal robberies continues, it emerges that Lord Archergait's death may have been murder - and he's not the only judge whose life is in danger. With a gang of ruthless killers still at large, it's down to Skinner to piece together a puzzle of sinister complexity.

    4 - 4 1/2 stars. This book, 8th in Jardine's excellent Bob Skinner series, was one of the better ones so far. In this one, Bob is called in when a judge, who everyone thought had had a heart attack, t...

  • Palmreader

    Good story, likeable characters except the lead is a bit of saint. So in order to be likeable, authors make their protagonists too sweet or something. Oh for a John Rebus again. Or even Bosch. Flawed ...

    Quentin Jardine books are a bit of a guilty pleasure, like garlic mayonnaise or a glass of wine at lunchtime. They're never ever going to be classics but they are enjoyable all the same. Long before D...

  • Melody

    Full of cold witches tits and over-the-top, almost comic dialog. A bit much for me. All crimes are neatly solved by Big Bob. It would seem that it would certainly help to have read the books before so...

    Quintin Jardine must love writing this series - Bob Skinner is SOOO larger than life, excelling in golf, squash, and everything else he tries. Very compelling stories, though -- I'm reading my way thr...
