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 . . .

Press Reviews

    Another cracker from Jardine...There are plenty of twists and turns along the way to keep you engrossed
  • Glasgow Herald
    If Ian Rankin is the Robert Carlyle of Scottish crime writers, then Jardine is surely its Sean Connery
  • Observer
    Praise for Quintin Jardine's novels: 'Well constructed, fast-paced, Jardine's narrative has many an ingenious twist and turn'

    Very engaging as well as ingenious, and the unraveling of the mystery is excellently done

    Deplorably readable
  • New York Times
    Remarkably assured, raw-boned, a tour de force

    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
  • Northern Echo
    Gritty cop drama that makes Taggart look tame
  • Peterborough Evening Telegraph
