Happy Birthday, Quintin Jardine, born 29 June 1945
- Your life informs your writing.
- For every hero, there has to be a fall guy, and the greater the triumph on one hand, the greater the humiliation on the other.
- There will always be people like me, who believe that to ripple the pages of a printed book is a special experience, one that through the centuries has taken millions from the darkness into the light.
Quintin Jardine is a Scottish author of three series of crime novels, featuring the fictional characters Bob Skinner, Oz Blackstone and Primavera Blackstone. He has written 26 books, including Skinner’s Ghost and Skinner’s Trail.
