After thirty years of service, former Chief Constable Bob Skinner faces the possible end of his police career, at its pinnacle. A trip to Catalunya to contemplate his future soon takes on a different flavour when Skinner is asked by a friend, Xavier Aislado, to track down one of his business’s brightest talents, who vanished without a trace. But it soon becomes clear that another manhunt is in progress, and that Skinner himself is the target. While his daughter Alex fights that battle at home, Skinner’s own search takes one sinister turn after another, until he is faced with the toughest question of all: is natural justice sometimes the only answer?
Dass Schottland einige großartige Autoren von Kriminalliteratur zu bieten hat, ist bekannt. Einer von ihnen ist Quintin Jardine, der drei Thriller-Serien verfasst. “The novel is told in two different first person voices – that of Bob and his daughter, Alex. Normally I’m not a big fan of the first person but Mr Jardine does it exceptionally well and I liked seeing the same events from two different points of view which is, I imagine hard to do.“ (Leserin) (136 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 416 Seiten noch günstig?
