Quintin Jardine. Headline Book Publishing, $8.99 (420pp) ISBN 978-0-7472-5667-0

When a notorious terrorist visits Edinburgh, Deputy Chief Constable Bob Skinner's behind-the-desk position as acting chief suddenly becomes a lot more exciting especially since the visit coincides with a conference of world leaders. An unrelated murder gradually grows in importance, both personally for Skinner and in light of the terrorist case, in Gallery Whispers, Quintin Jardine's (Murmuring the Judges) ninth Skinner mystery.
