"We’ve all experienced the novel with the unforgettable character who isn’t the star. We would love to know more, but can he or she return with the same memorable power? That’s what Quintin Jardine (subject of today’s My Books, My Place) does in this superb novel, the story of journalist Xavier (Xavi) Aislado of Edinburgh. Half Spanish, half Scot and all remarkable, and here in a “memoir” co-written by his friend Quintin Jardine, who claims to have met him through a mutual acquaintance, Detective Bob Skinner."
