Summary

Maverick ex-cop Quint Dalrymple returns to investigate a series of gruesome murders in a near-future independent Edinburgh, in 2033. The Council of City Guardians has been forced to relax its grip on citizens and the borders are no longer secure. Then a human heart is found on a football pitch. Quint Dalrymple is called in, just as a citizen's headless body floats down a canal. He uncovers a link to the planned referendum over Edinburgh joining a reconstituted Scotland. But who is behind the killings? Quint must dig deep to save the Council from collapse, and to retain both his head and heart....

Dystopian Edinburgh

It's been years since I read the previous book in this series and I was very glad to be back in a version of Edinburgh set slightly in the future. Quint Dalrymple makes an interesting protagonist and although this wasn't the most exciting crime, the pace was good and I enjoy the familiarity of the setting.
Brilliant narration really added to my enjoyment.
