About Quintin Jardine

Quintin Jardine took to crime writing both naturally and with relief. Both series of books by Quintin Jardine are available from Headline: the Bob Skinner novels, and the equally praised but very different, Oz Blackstone series. He is also about to embark on a thrilling new series, starring Oz's tough-talking ex, Primavera Phillips.
