A plane explodes mid-flight and plunges to disaster from the Scottish skies, the British and American defence secretaries among the victims.
Now Edinburgh’s Deputy Chief Constable Bob Skinner must lead the most high-profile investigation of his career. The means of destruction is apparent from the start, but the investigation quickly grows more puzzling.
When Skinner himself is wrenched from the case, his colleagues struggle with the mass of clues while he fights for his life, trapped with the secret horrors of his past. As Skinner’s ordeal reaches its crescendo, the police pursue their suspects in a dramatic race to hunt down those responsible. But will their much-respected DCC be able to pull himself back from the brink in time?

Thought I had come across all the Skinner books, but this originally came out in the 90s, although only recently as an audiobook.
From the beginning it sounds like the Lockerbie bombing, and proceeds as a murder investigation rather than an aircrash investigation. Terrible though it is, Skinner seems disproportionately upset and we have a lot of his personal history which was interesting

Great plot and character
A brilliant listen. James Bryce is excellent at creating all of the many characters. He brought this book to life and read with emotion.
Plot kept you on your toes throughout and I loved the way the story developed and finally resolved. It was great to see that policing can be frustrating.
I’ve already downloaded the next book.
bit surprised at abrupt ending which is completely out of the blue really given previous relationship closeness.
American accent as always from this narrator ...appalling ..sorry bit true..
