Homage to Catalonia and Caledonia

I've always enjoyed Quintin Jardine's Skinner books. They're so different from Rankin's Rebus insofar as Rebus remains at the same level in the Lothian and Borders Force whereas Skinner seems to zoom from Inspector (?) to Chief Constable in an instant. Both cops are good in their own way. Jardine's new book The Loner has a new protagonist, half Catalan and half Scottish. Guess where Jardine spends his time! I've read about 120 pages so far and am enjoying this book. Apparently Skinner will make an appearance...
