Primavera Blackstone Ser, Fiction, Crime & mystery

The fifth title in Quintin Jardine's Spanish-set Primavera Blackstone series sees the unwelcome return of a blast from the past.

The fifth thrilling mystery in Quintin Jardine's Primavera Blackstone series.

Primavera Blackstone has finally found contentment by the Spanish sea. A fiercely protective single mother, she doesn't appreciate an offer of marriage. Nor does she welcome a blast from her murky Scottish past, retired cop Ricky Ross.

Ricky now works for millionaire airline owner Jack Weighley - a powerful man to whom you don't say 'no'. Together Primavera and Ricky must investigate a series of assaults on Jack's aircraft. Are they acts of vandalism, or the sinister work of Catalan extremists? As Primavera and Ricky are drawn into events, and the body count rises, Primavera begins to understand the true meaning of 'till death us do part'...

Quintin Jardine

Quintin Jardine was born once upon a time in the West - of Scotland rather than America, but still he grew to manhood as a massive Sergio Leone fan. On the way there he was educated, against his will, in Glasgow, where he ditched a token attempt to study law for more interesting careers in journalism, government propaganda, and political spin-doctoring. After a close call with the Brighton Bomb in 1984, he moved into the even riskier world of media relations consultancy, before realising that all along he had been training to become a crime writer. Now, forty novels later, he never looks back.

Along the way he has created/acquired an extended family in Scotland and Spain. Everything he does is for them.

He can be tracked down through his blog: http://quintinjardine.me
