Somewhere over the Rainbow

by Quintin Jardine

Once upon a time in what was then reasonably Great Britain, there was a world in which the not too serious business of politics was practised without those people known today, nonsensically, as spin doctors, and without whispers against those who were supposed to be friends, but who were in fact blockages on the ladder of ambition.

This book is a wistful recollection of those days.

None of it actually happened.

But it would be nice to think that it might have.

About the Author

Once upon a time . . . Quintin Jardine was born in Motherwell, Lanarkshire, but he escaped, and now lives in East Lothian and from time to time in Spain, with his wife and extended family. He is the author of thirty-eight best selling crime novels, all published by Headline, a member of the Hachette Group (or 'Hatchet' as it was memorably pronounced by an Australian Chairperson).

'Hour of Darkness', which was published in June 2014, is the twenty-fourth to star his creation, Chief Constable Bob Skinner, who made his debut twenty-one years ago in 'Skinner's Rules'. His second, and slightly anarchic, series featured actor-detective Oz Blackstone, and ran to nine books. He brought that to a natural end with 'For the Death of Me', and moved swiftly on to the Spanish-based Primavera Mysteries, of which the fifth, 'As Serious as Death', was published in November 2013. Amidst all that, he found time to produce two standalone novels, 'The Loner', and most recently, 'Mathew's Tale', his first venture into the historical genre.
