Fastpaced and packed with twists and turns, Last Resort is the landmark 25th novel in Quintin Jardine’s Bob Skinner crime series.
It shows Edinburgh’s toughest cop facing a very different kind of case.
A quiet trip to Catalunya soon takes on a different flavour when Skinner is approached by an old friend with an unusual request. One of his business’s brightest talents has vanished without a trace. Now it’s up to Skinner to track him down.
The search takes one sinister turn after another, until Skinner is faced with the toughest question of all: Is natural justice sometimes the only answer?
