9780747256687: Thursday Legends (Skinner 10)
Review:

'If Ian Rankin is the Robert Carlyle of Scottish crime writers, then Jardine is surely its Sean Connery' Herald (Glasgow)

This gritty, fast-paced mystery will pin even the most squeamish reader to the page ( Publishers Weekly)

'If you're looking for a detective whose personal life is as active, contradictory and complicated as his job then follow the Edinburgh exploits of Deputy Chief Constable Bob Skinner in Quintin Jardine's Skinner series. The rough-and-ready Christopher Eccleston who impressed us with his accent in Shallow Grave could easily star, and Julianna Margulies could convince anyone that she's a sexy American who cuts up dead bodies' Radio Times

'Heart-stopping thriller' Peterborough Evening Telegraph

'Gritty cop drama that makes Taggart look tame' Northern Echo Darlington

From the Publisher:

For Deputy Chief Constable Bob Skinner, the Thursday night football game at the local gym has long been an unbroken ritual. With each match the players are a little older, a little slower, but as fiercely competitive as a gang of teenagers. Until the savagely mutilated body of a former player is found, and suddenly the Thursday Legends have more to worry about than aching backs and dodgy knees. Former Head of Special Branch Alec Smith made plenty of enemies during his long career - and there is no shortage of suspects. But as Skinner's investigation gathers pace, everything keeps pointing to the Legends themselves. Is someone targeting this disparate group of colleagues and friends in some bizarre scheme of retribution? Or is the murderer one of them? Either way, the hunt for the killer is going to come uncomfortably close to home...
