Can Skinner surmount the greatest challenge of his life... and if he does, will he ever be the same? A thrilling novel in the hugely popular Scottish crime series.

When a body is found after a flood, the secrets of a tempestuous life surface with it. Deputy Chief Constable Bob Skinner has kept the existence of his hated brother Michael hidden for years. As he relives their past conflict, other demons threaten his future. For not only are his professional enemies circling, but Sarah, his wife, seems set on a course for calamity. Meanwhile, in an Edinburgh art gallery, his team confront a shocking and very public case of arson. Was it a political protest, or something much deeper?

From the Publisher:

The heat is on for Bob Skinner, Scotland’s most revered and, in some circles, most feared cop. His career hangs by a thread, as a recent illness gives his enemies a weapon to use against him. A body found in the detritus of a flood is identified as the hated brother whose existence Skinner has kept hidden for years. On the crime front, an incendiary device destroys a valuable painting in Edinburgh’s Royal Scottish Academy. As Skinner and his team tackle these crises, his wife Sarah—left in America, with their children, to recover from the tragic death of her parents—finds comfort with an old college lover. When fate leaves her staring at a seemingly inevitable murder conviction, Skinner will need all his fearsome resources to sort out the tangled mess of his life. But is he still up to the challenge? Lightning–paced and emotionally gripping, Fallen Gods is Quintin Jardine’s breakthrough novel.

From the Inside Flap:

The hair–trigger thrillers of Quintin Jardine, one of Scotland’s top–selling crime writers, have been highly praised for their ingenious plotting and powerful emotional drama. With Bob Skinner, Edinburgh’s toughest cop, at the center of the action, they form a first–rate, robustly entertaining series of police procedurals.
