    For those furiously bidding on Rankin's 'Complaints' bear in mind that Jardine's 'Fatal Last Words' is an ideal companion.

    While they are not rival authors (well not really!!) they both write about police in Edinburgh, one at the top of the tree (QJ) and one at the bottom of that tree (IR).

    You would be missing out of you did not consider taking the person who would have been Rebus' boss (although I fear that Rebus would have little respect for Skinner :policecap: )

    So, something for your consideration.

    Product Description

    It's no ordinary summer for DCC Bob Skinner, as murder mystery leaps from the page into reality in the new book in Quintin Jardine’s outstanding police series.
    August in Edinburgh: As Skinner stands on the edge of a career-defining moment and his fiancée, Scotland's First Minister Aileen de Marco faces a political crisis, a famous figure from another field is found dead. As the mystery deepens, Skinner finds himself crossing swords with an old enemy from the past, while his investigating detectives are faced with the unwelcome complication of a duke’s junkie daughter. Meanwhile a second Scottish celebrity dies violently in Australia. It seems impossible, but could the two be connected? As DCS Mario McGuire heads to Melbourne to investigate, back in Scotland his boss’s big moment is compromised in the most dramatic and unexpected manner, as a famous friendship is shattered for ever.

    About the Author
    Quintin Jardine gave up the life of a political spin doctor for the more morally acceptable world of murder and mayhem. Happily married, he hides from critics and creditors in secret locations in Scotland and Spain.
