Bob Skinner returns in Cold Case

It’s a monumental day today as the 30th book in the Bob Skinner series is published!

Cold Case, the latest outing for former Chief Constable Bob Skinner, is a thrilling mystery that doesn’t shy away from its share of grit and heart-stopping twists.

When a murder investigation that’s been closed for thirty years is suddenly re-opened, former Chief Constable Bob Skinner is quickly drawn into the action.

The story of the Body in the Quarry was well-known around Edinburgh all those years ago: a popular priest found dead in a frozen quarry; a suspect with a clear motive charged; a guilty verdict. But with a journalist uncovering new evidence, the cold case has come back to haunt Skinner’s old mentor Jimmy Proud – and only one man can help him.

Skinner is long out of the police force, but he can’t say no. With the clock ticking, and his friend’s reputation at stake, he must uncover the truth to find out if an innocent man was convicted for murder. And if a killer is still on the loose . . .

If you’ve missed out on any of the novels leading up to Cold Case, today is also your lucky day because it’s also the paperback publication day for A Brush With Death, the 29th Bob Skinner novel.

Skinner joins his old team in a complex murder investigation when millionaire Leo Speight is found poisoned at his Ayrshire mansion and Police Scotland has a tough case on its hands. Speight was a champion boxer with national hero status, and a long list of lovers and friends stand to benefit from his estate. Did one of them decide to speed things up? Or was jealousy or rivalry the motive?

The Security Service wants to stay close to the investigation and they have just the man to send in: ex-Chief Constable Bob Skinner. Skinner might have retired from the police, but solving crimes is in his blood. Combining forces with DI Lottie Mann and DS Dan Provan of Serious Crimes, he’s determined to see Speight’s murderer put away for a long time. But there’s a twist even Bob Skinner couldn’t see coming . . .
