Product description

About the Author

Once upon a time . . . Quintin Jardine was born in Motherwell, Lanarkshire, but he escaped, and now lives in East Lothian and from time to time in Spain, with his wife and extended family. He is the author of thirty-eight best selling crime novels, all published by Headline, a member of the Hachette Group (or ‘Hatchet’ as it was memorably pronounced by an Australian Chairperson). 'Hour of Darkness', which was published in June 2014, is the twenty-fourth to star his creation, Chief Constable Bob Skinner, who made his debut twenty-one years ago in 'Skinner’s Rules'. His second, and slightly anarchic, series featured actor-detective Oz Blackstone, and ran to nine books. He brought that to a natural end with 'For the Death of Me', and moved swiftly on to the Spanish-based Primavera Mysteries, of which the fifth, 'As Serious as Death', was published in November 2013. Amidst all that, he found time to produce two standalone novels, 'The Loner', and most recently, 'Mathew’s Tale', his first venture into the historical genre.

A wonderfully entertaining and detailed account of crude and petty party and inter-party politics and how things were done in the days before iphones, Facebook and YouYube. Highly recommended.

I enjoyed this book and found it was well written and interesting. A little bit difficult to follow at times because of the number of characters but that did not detract from the overall enjoyment.
What was particularly irritating was the profussion of typos.

This is a great story, but the text contains a number of really bad spelling mistakes
It didn't detract from my enjoyment, and after Mr Jardine tires of Primavera and Bob, he should consider another political novel.

Having been a Party Political Candidate around that era, I found this to be a very accurate and humerous account of Party Politics. It was spoiled by the fact that whilst it had been obviously dictated by the author, there were many typographical and grammatical errors which detracted from the story. It's a pity that it had clearly not been properly proof read prior to publication.

Disappointed in this book, it I may have had expectations above what it is. Well written but not for me.

At the third attempt I managed to finish this book and was glad when I had ! I love this author's work normally but found this very bitty and without real core.
