Cold Case (Bob Skinner series, Book 30) Summary

Cold Case (Bob Skinner series, Book 30): Scottish crime fiction at its very best by Quintin Jardine

Is a killer still on the loose?

The thirtieth gritty mystery in Quintin Jardine's bestselling Bob Skinner series, not to be missed by readers of Ian Rankin and Peter May. Praise for Quintin Jardine's gripping novels: 'Well constructed, fast-paced, Jardine's narrative has many an ingenious twist and turn' Observer

When a murder investigation that's been closed for thirty years is suddenly re-opened, former Chief Constable Bob Skinner is quickly drawn into the action.

The story of the Body in the Quarry was well-known around Edinburgh all those years ago: a popular priest found dead in a frozen quarry; a suspect with a clear motive charged; a guilty verdict. But with a journalist uncovering new evidence, the cold case has come back to haunt Skinner's old mentor Jimmy Proud - and only one man can help him.

Skinner is long out of the police force, but he can't say no. With the clock ticking, and his friend's reputation at stake, he must uncover the truth to find out if an innocent man was convicted for murder. And if a killer is still on the loose . . .

Cold Case (Bob Skinner series, Book 30) Reviews

Praise for Quintin Jardine's novels: 'Well constructed, fast-paced, Jardine's narrative has many an ingenious twist and turn' * Observer *
Another cracker from Jardine...There are plenty of twists and turns along the way to keep you engrossed * Scots Magazine *
Very engaging as well as ingenious, and the unraveling of the mystery is excellently done * Scotsman *
If Ian Rankin is the Robert Carlyle of Scottish crime writers, then Jardine is surely its Sean Connery * Glasgow Herald *
Deplorably readable * Guardian *
Remarkably assured, raw-boned, a tour de force * New York Times *
I love the Bob Skinner novels. Quintin Jardine's slick and suspenseful Edinburgh-set series has never failed to keep me riveted...starts with a bang and doesn't let up till the last sentence * The Globe and Mail *
Gritty cop drama that makes Taggart look tame * Northern Echo *
Another powerful tartan noir that packs a punch * Peterborough Evening Telegraph *

About Quintin Jardine

Quintin Jardine was born once upon a time in the West - of Scotland rather than America, but still he grew to manhood as a massive Sergio Leone fan. On the way there he was educated, against his will, in Glasgow, where he ditched a token attempt to study law for more interesting careers in journalism, government propaganda, and political spin-doctoring. After a close call with the Brighton Bomb in 1984, he moved into the even riskier world of media relations consultancy, before realising that all along he had been training to become a crime writer. Now, forty novels later, he never looks back.

Along the way he has created/acquired an extended family in Scotland and Spain. Everything he does is for them.

He can be tracked down through his blog: http://quintinjardine.me
