The twenty-fifth novel in the Bob Skinner series sees the Edinburgh cop undertake a very different assignment.
After thirty years of service, former chief constable Bob Skinner faces the possible end of his police career at its pinnacle. A quiet trip to Catalunya to contemplate his future soon takes on a different flavour when Skinner is approached by an old friend, media owner Xavier Aislado, with an unusual request.
One of his business' brightest talents, Hector Sureda Roca, has vanished without a trace. Now it's up to Skinner to track him down. But as he conducts his search, it soon becomes clear that another manhunt is also in progress and that he himself is the target.
While his daughter, Alex, fights that battle on the home front, his search for Sureda takes one sinister turn after another until he is faced with the toughest question of all. Is natural justice sometimes the only answer?

"The Last Resort but (I think) not the last of Bob"
A good story and well narrated. A few reminisces into past books and the exploits of his latest lovechild - now an adult. I think we have not heard the last of Bob Skinner but we will hear of him in a different role in the future. A worthwhile listen.
Excellent story line and also the narration. Always love this author's books and this one is as good as ever. Wish he would write quicker as I can't wait for the next 'Bob Skinner'.
"Last Resort by Quintin Jardine"
I have now listened to all of the series of the Skinner books and may listen again after a few years gap.
I have always enjoyed the characters in the Skinner books and the way they grow older and their evolve, they marry, have children, characters die as they do in real life.
They all merge into one.
The end of an era!!
I would highly recommend the whole Skinner series.
"Last resort is aptly named"
I stuck with this book out of loyalty to bob Skinner tales most of them were outstanding
However I can't tell you how poor this experience has been
The last resort is without a doubt the last Skinner tale I shall buy
