A shallow grave hides the deepest secrets...
An exhumed body reveals long-buried secrets in Quintin Jardine's Bob Skinner mystery, Funeral Note. Perfect for fans of Ian Rankin and Val McDermid.
After a tip-off, a man's body is exhumed from a shallow grave in Edinburgh. Murder surely, yet he died from natural causes, so, case closed? Indeed was there ever a case? But Chief Constable Skinner and his people keep on digging. Who was the man, why was he buried so reverentially, and by whom?
Meanwhile corruption is discovered within the force, and an investigation is launched. Immersed in crises, his marriage heading for the rocks, Skinner finds his very career hanging in the balance, its fate beyond his control. In a tale seen through the eyes of each of its leading players, mystery upon mystery is laid down until the greatest threat of all those facing the Chief is revealed, and a deadly race begins. Can he win out, or will his life implode?

Loved this book and the style it was written in, can't wait for the next one
Great page turner nice gain, even better than the last 3 James Paterson book I have read - pity about the ending!
A meagre plot, some old information from previous books rehashed with a slightly different interpretation and then an insulting ending. Not much in this for people who have read previous books in the series.
