DCC Bob Skinner has a failed marriage on his hands, and a death on his conscience, but little time to deal with either as he faces the biggest challenge of his career within the secret corridors where dark power is wielded. As his hunt develops, he goes to the very top - the Prime Minister - lest he himself becomes collateral damage. Meanwhile, back in Edinburgh, Skinner's daughter is being harassed by a stalker. Can he protect her? A bookmaker has taken one gamble too many and paid his debt in a gruesome fashion. Is it an underworld vendetta, or something more sinister? Alongside it all, a casual call to the Chief Constable sets him on a personal crusade which quickly points to a bigamist at work. Or is it worse? Four crimes, four crises: can Skinner and his people solve them? Indeed, can they survive them?

Publishers Weekly, 2006-10-16 In Lethal Intent (2005), Deputy Chief Constable Bob Skinner foiled an assault on a member of the British royal family, uncovering a nest of traitors. In this hard-hitting sequel, Jardine's 16th police procedural to feature the Edinburgh detective, Skinner is tapped by the head of MI5 to investigate the security breaches highlighted in Lethal Intent and root out those who supported the conspirators. Newcomers would do well to read the previous book first, while series fans should be prepared for a distracting subplot about a stalker who has targeted Skinner's daughter, some stilted dialogue and less-than-credible characters.
