4.0 out of 5 stars Inspector Skinner the Phoenix 23 Oct 2003
By McAngel
Format:Paperback
Without spoiling the suspense for devotees of Quentin Jardine's Inspector Skinner, it's difficult to know where to begin to review this one, as the "Big Man" dropped at his wife's feet at the end of "Head Shot". However, fear not, there turns out to be a medical explanation for this.
Our Inspector Skinner is becoming more (fallibly) human with each episode of his fictional life - and the people who work with (and for) him are developping characters. Notwithstanding the advancement of the characters' continuing maturity, there is a cleverly tied-in "who-done-it" theme, which almost finishes on the last page.
I carried this book everywhere - literally couldn't put it down - and consequently nearly left it in a public place!

4.0 out of 5 stars Skinner still rules! 5 Jan 2004
Format:Paperback
This is yet another of the Skinner books which I found it hard to stop reading. It's always "just one more chapter and then I'll put it down" - but it never is! This book has more about the main characters than many of the previous ones, especially Mario and Maggie, and even more new information about "The Big Man" himself. I love the way Quintin Jardine moves effortlessly between the various storylines going on throughout the book and keeps the readers' attention so easily. The end of Sarah's story, if I can call it that, I felt was a bit weak, but apart from that..... As usual, I can't wait for the next one to come out!

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Cop Soaps Around 31 Jan 2007
Format:Paperback
Early on in the Bob Skinner series, there were, understandably, comparisions to that other Edinburgh detective, namely one John Rebus.These days the two series of books are miles apart. The Skinner books are thoroughly readable at some points unputdownable, yet personally I don't like or relate to the Skinner character though I would never want to cross him. This installment is as good as the rest, but it certainly isn't one of the best. I feel that last three of four books are nothing more than soaps - high quality one albeit - as they revolve increasingly aroung the lives, loves and losses of the main characters with police investigations being the fillers inbetween. That, however, won't stop me reading and enjoying the next Bob Skinner book

4.0 out of 5 stars A short but gripping step for Skinner. 15 July 2003
Format:Paperback
Another installment in the Skinner series, and it seems as though Quintin Jardine has long-term plans for his ace detective.
With Fallen Gods, Skinner is thrown yet more personal and professional troubles and the focus is mainly on character development, with the crime based storylines seeming a little thin. The pieces are definitely coming together for a number of major character changes and promotions; I can't wait to see how Jardine brings them about.
Certainly not the place to start with the Skinner series, but a required read if you've followed the Scotsmen this far.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best 19 Sep 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is without doubt one of the best books in the Bob Skinner series, both in respect of the storyline and also the continuing threads running through all the books about the private lives of the main characters. I really enjoyed this story and couldn't bear it when I reached the end. But every book leaves me wanting more so, as I write this review, I am a further two books along in the series.

Quintin Jardine's books are among my favourites. Bob Skinner is a fascinating character as well as being an excellent policeman. The stories always have a good twist to them.
