When an Edinburgh car showroom is torched, leaving a charred body among the burnt-out luxury cars, Deputy Chief Constable Bob Skinner wonders if a life of crime has finally caught up with one of the city's most elusive villains. But the corpse turns out not to be that of Jackie Charles, the owner of the showroom, but his wife Carole.
Skinner now finds himself on the same side as his old enemy. However, Skinner's number one priority is a murder much closer to home. Ever since memories of his first wife Myra's death resurfaced under hypnosis, the question of how she really died has become an obsession which could threaten his career, his marriage and even his sanity.

To think Bob Skinner, this paragon of virtue would employ an assistant that he then starts to have a relationship with is ridiculous
The book was very well read, with clear characters, the actual story was also good, but the characters were so one dimensional and stereotypical that I had to struggle to listen to it.
