Product description


"Scott brilliantly evokes the life of a small Scottish town." --Richmond Times-Dispatch

"Scott's writing is engaging, and her plotting Macbethian. The characters of the crusading small-town newspaper are skillfully drawn and will have readers rooting for them unequivocally." --Booklist

"Readers...should enjoy Scott's careful attention to creating characters who convincingly belong to a past era's attitudes and values." -Publishers Weekly

"Set against the bleak beauty of the Highlands, Scott's second (A Small Death In a Great Glenn, 2010) continues to explore the slow transformation of Scotland from a highly ordered society while presenting a fine mystery with engaging characters." --Kirkus Reviews (starred)

"Another stunner...Lots of action, lots of atmosphere, and above all, lots of fun." --Booklist (starred)

"As patrician and working classes prepare to do battle, Scott's well-written mystery is lyrical and arresting." (blog)

"The characters are engaging, and the suspense mounts along with a growing sense of dread as events surrounding the death of a young boy unfold." --Peter Robinson

"This mystery is a delight to unravel, with its lively dialect-sprouting players, inhabiting a lavishly described, forbidding but beautiful landscape." --Kirkus

"Oh, what a delight, this book! Almost perfect in every way." --William Kent Krueger

"Brims with an intimate knowledge of the Scottish Highlands...a novel to savor."" --Malla Nunn

"An impressive first novel...Scott uses the background of religious intolerance, prejudice and petty jealousies, to bring together an engaging cast of warm and colorful characters." --Ann Cleeves --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
