Robert Hale 2008 Released 28/11/08
It all began as a tribute to the memory of families ruthlessly driven from their crofts during the Highland Clearances. A descendant who had done well for himself overseas decides to fund a sentimental rebuilding of his ancestor's home, calling in experts to authenticate each relic and to trace the Ross Tapestry.
But when one of his most bitter enemies is murdered, and one of his most conscientious employees finds holes in the basic story and dies in a near tragic historic site, the researchers find themselves caught up in a menacing game.
What dangers now lie in wait for Lady Torrance, as her historical expertise becomes less important than her earlier training as Det. Inspector Lesley Gunn in more violent situations, and 'the Laird and the Law' face a deadly showdown?
The book so far - is brilliant and in John's words 'is a thriller with some weird elements thrown in.'
Complete review and interview with John talking about the book will be on his website in a few weeks or so.
