The body of a murdered woman is found washed up on Cramond Island near the mouth of the River Forth. Days later detectives are called to a flat in Edinburgh; the kitchen is covered in blood, and the occupier is missing.
When the name of the woman from Cramond Island is revealed, it stirs unwelcome memories for those who knew her, Chief Constable Bob Skinner most of all. Now based in Glasgow, he has no reason to become involved in the case. Yet he does, unwittingly setting in motion a course that leads him to the toughest choice of his life, putting him in the midst of a personal nightmare, both life-threatening and career changing.
Hour Of Darkness (Bob Skinner Mysteries Book 24)
I can't believe I waited so long to read this book, Its been on my to read list for ages.
However when I started reading it, it was like re visiting old friends. As each of the characters were mentioned everything started to come back from the 23 books I had previously read.
I have had a fictional crush on Bob Skinner for some time... lol.. I just think he's amazing. lol. Kind of like the Scottish Alex Cross.
As usual, this is a bloody good story, and the book flows along nicely. Leaving you wanting to read it at every opportunity.
I have enjoyed over the years the life of Bob Skinner, family, Friends, work colleagues and relationships, are as much part of the stories as the crimes themselves.
There are quite a number of characters in this book, I really feel having read all the previous books helped with this, so If you are going to read them, I would advise you do so from the very beginning
Here are books 1 to 5 in the series.
