Bob Skinner Synopses: In Skinner’s Festival (book 2 in QJ’s Bob Skinner series), Princes Street is rocked by a terrorist attack during the Edinburgh Festival. The terrorists demand Scotland gain independence from Great Britain, and as attacks escalate, Skinner soon realizes that the terrorist group consists of professionals rather than maniacs.

The third book in Quintin Jardine’s Bob Skinner is entitled Skinner’s Trail. Around the same time as Skinner’s son is born, a man has been found killed in a luxurious villa. The man ran a chain of launderettes, saunas, and pubs throughout Edinburgh, which the police had thought was a front for a drug dealing network.
