DCC Bob Skinner has a failed marriage on his hands, and a death on his conscience, but little time to deal with either as he faces the biggest challenge of his career within the secret corridors where dark power is wielded. As his hunt develops, he goes to the very top - the Prime Minister - lest he himself becomes collateral damage. Meanwhile, back in Edinburgh, Skinner's daughter is being harassed by a stalker. Can he protect her? A bookmaker has taken one gamble too many and paid his debt in a gruesome fashion. Is it an underworld vendetta, or something more sinister? Alongside it all, a casual call to the Chief Constable sets him on a personal crusade which quickly points to a bigamist at work. Or is it worse? Four crimes, four crises: can Skinner and his people solve them? Indeed, can they survive them?

I "caught" this book, along with 2 others, in a Brighouse Charity Shop for just 50p - thanks (again) Plum-crazy for making it so easy to catch wild books! Reading and review will follow.

I would have given this book an 8 as it is well plotted and written (although a lot of the speech was rather stilted and formal for my liking).
However it gets a 6; there were so many twists and turns I ended up a little lost and slightly dizzy - I suppose getting your head around all the names beginning with Mc and all those beginning with E is a big part of unravelling the story!
It finished superbly, and all loose ends were tied up very nicely. Maybe you'll have better luck with this book if you've read a few more in the Bob Skinner series and are familiar with all the McCharacters!
