Publisher's Summary

Still reeling from the tragic death of their much-loved colleague, Skinner's men are about to discover that a disturbed serial killer is still at large and very close to home. DCC Bob Skinner and his men get a call informing them that the body of a young woman has been found on a golf course. The way she has been laid out is uncannily familiar; the body has been "composed", just like the bodies of three other young women in a previous case. Could it be the work of a copycat killer?

Scottish Thriller

I enjoyed this. It reminded me of several detective stories most likely Taggart and Rebus (the scottish theme having something to do with that!). It was long enough to really get into the tale, and to develop likes and dislikes for the characters, and the ending was satisfying too!

I have listened to several Bob Skinner novels, by Quentin Jardine and I found this to be disappointing. The plot was forced,and unbelievable. The prose was incredibly choked with detail and I subsequently lost the thread of what was happening and why.
Bob Skinner the DCC was never threatened by any event. and it did strike me that in constructing the novel there were lots of loose ends that suddenly had to be finished off hence information that the reader wasn't privy to suddenly appeared out of thin air. and that was frustrating.
I was looking forward to this novel, but was never hooked by any plausibility. And apart from the references to Scottish law and the magnificient depth of intonation of the narrator, I feel there was little to match that of Ian Rankin and the amazing Rebus
