When two young female artists are murdered in what appear to be ritualistic killings, the pressure is on to find the highly professional murderer. The arrival of the father of the second victim, millionaire businessman Davor Boras, brings in the Home Office, MI5, the CIA, and the seasoned Detective Chief Constable Bob Skinner. With an estranged son, a dubious assistant, and connections in very high places, it’s unclear whether business or family is more important to Boras. The killer may have met his match in the Boras family, and Skinner’s men quickly find themselves at risk of getting caught in the crossfire.

Quintin Jardine is also the author of the Oz Blackstone series.From AudioFile:
James Bryce is an old hand at these densely populated, masterfully crafted police procedurals by Jardine. In this 17th book to take place in Edinburgh, Scotland, the usual protagonist, DCC Bob Skinner, doesn't make an appearance until late in the book. This is not only a story of multiple murder victims found around Edinburgh, it's also a chance to catch up on the personal lives of the many interwoven characters--their love affairs, promotions, and new families. The story builds slowly, which works well if you're just finding you're way to this series. Once Skinner arrives, the tension ratchets up. Bycre approaches this material like he's greeting old friends. He performs with calm deliberation that is a perfect match for this carefully plotted mystery.
