Death comes in many disguises...
A terrorist threat and a serial killer on the streets of Edinburgh spell trouble for Scotland's toughest cop in Gallery Whispers, the ninth instalment in Quintin Jardine's gripping crime series. Perfect for fans of Ian Rankin and Peter May.
'Heart-stopping thriller' - Peterborough Evening Telegraph
Deputy Chief Constable Bob Skinner has a lot on his plate. One of the world's most ruthless terrorists is on his way to Edinburgh with only one thing on his mind: the forthcoming conference of world Heads of Government. If Skinner doesn't pick up his trail fast, he could have a global disaster in his backyard. While all eyes are focused on the terrorist threat, a terminally ill woman is found dead - an apparent suicide. But the marks of an assisted death are discovered. Yet this seemingly random death soon proves to be the beginning of an ominous pattern. For Skinner, the desperate race to find a heartless terrorist mixes uneasily with the search for a mercy killer- a search which takes on a poignant personal significance. And it's not long before Skinner himself will be staring death straight in the eye...

When a notorious terrorist visits Edinburgh, Deputy Chief Constable Bob Skinner's behind-the-desk position as acting chief suddenly becomes a lot more exciting especially since the visit coincides with a conference of world leaders. An unrelated murder gradually grows in importance, both personally for Skinner and in light of the terrorist case, in Gallery Whispers, Quintin Jardine's (Murmuring the Judges) ninth Skinner mystery.
