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.

QUITE LIKED THIS
Yes. It's a good story and if you're listening late or night, the descriptions are factual rather than gory.
That I didn't guess who dunnit till the end.
It was OK though it seemed difficult for him to have enough different characters voices.
Not really. It was dramatic but no tear jerk moments.
I had to smile at some of the female descriptions and treatment. None of them seemed to have a bad hair day or do anything but handle their day-to-day lives perfectly. Also skinner was in danger of becoming an old curmudgeon before his time!
