As Jemima Shore, Investigator, arrives at Inverness Station for a Highland holiday, the sun is shining. Paradise, she thinks. But at that moment, she hears a voice: “All this way for a funeral.”

So begins an adventure far removed from Jemima’s visions of heather-covered hills, crystal-clear streams, romantic men in kilts, fairy-tale castles … Instead she is plunged into the strange world of the aristocratic Beauregard family with its tensions, its jealousies and its violence; in many ways a primitive world dominated by the land and its possessing. The setting is the Wild Island itself, sometimes enchanting but too often frighteningly remote; the streams, not silvery, but brown and sinister; her holiday home with its disturbing, sometimes terrifying, influences; the people- the dashing war hero Colonel Henry, and his sons, the forthright old priest Father Flanagan, Bridie the family servant, Clementina the wayward heiress … none of them quite what they seem.

And then there is the spectre of the Scottish freedom fighters, in the shape of the self-styled army of the Red Rose.

It all adds up to a compulsively and brilliantly told story of mystery and intrigue on the Wild Island.
