Oz Blackstone returns with a starring role in a tremendously fast-paced and witty crime adventure
After an eventful career as a spin doctor to the powerful, rich and notorious, fifteen years ago Quintin Jardine found that his talents were equally well fitted to the world of crime fiction. His interests are playing football, watching football, talking about football and watching golf. He lives, as quietly as his nature will allow, in Scotland and in Spain.
In Quintin Jardine's Poisoned Cherries, the Scottish author's sixth hard-hitting Oz Blackstone mystery, the rugged Glaswegian thinks he's sitting pretty after landing a big role in a cop movie being filmed in Edinburgh. But a rocky marriage, an ex-lover with a special favor and murder ensure that Oz hits a few bumps on the road to stardom. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
P.I. Blackstone has been offered a role in a film shooting in Edinburgh, but his marriage is floundering, his girlfriend is pregnant, and an ex wants a favor. When he finds the ex's business partner/fiance dead, though, it looks like someone's been set up. A fine mix of procedural and intrigue. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
