Synopsis

Strip Jack by Ian Rankin

Someone is stripping Jack naked....

Gregor Jack, MP, well-liked, young, married to the fiery Elizabeth - to the outside world a very public success story. But Jack's carefully nurtured career plans take a tumble after a "mistake" during a police raid on a notorious Edinburgh brothel. Then Elizabeth disappears, a couple of bodies float into view where they shouldn't, and a lunatic speaks from his asylum... With his wife missing, his job on the line and his sanity in doubt, Gregor Jack is ripe for revenge.

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

Lovereading tells me about new books before they hit the shelves, lets me find other authors I may like and has great prize draws!

Sheila Dale

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

Rebecca Jayne Barrett

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.

Sally Doel

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.
