S. G. MACLEAN    Book Number: 89636    Product format: Paperback

Shortlisted for the CWA Historical Dagger Award, here is top notch historical fiction from the author of the acclaimed Seeker series and a sleuth to rival Shardlake or Cadfael - this mystery will chill your blood. Banff, Scotland in the 1620s. A local apothecary's assistant collapses in the street. Is he just drunk or is there something more sinister happening? When he collapses in front of two sisters on that dark, wet night, the women guess that he's been poisoned. His body is discovered in the house of Alexander Seaton, a fallen minister, the discovery of whose clandestine love affair has left him disgraced and a reluctant embittered teacher. Why was the body in Seaton's house? Why would anyone want to murder this likeable young man? Seaton sets out to find answers, embarking on a journey not only through the darkest part of other men's souls, but also his own. Murder is suspected and when one of Alexander's few friends in the town is arrested, Alexander sets out to prove his innocence. Set in a period of history when the mindset was east to believe that Satan was walking abroad, we are transported back in time to 17th century Scotland. 410pp, paperback, useful glossary.
