Devastated by a sudden bereavement, Leo Moran is invited to spend the summer at Biggnarbriggs Hall in southern Scotland, the stately residence of his friend Fordyce Greatorix. He is overjoyed when romance blossoms unexpectedly, but he finds himself haunted by visions after a local girl goes missing, an incident which has chilling echoes of a similar disappearance thirty years previously. As he investigates a host of curious and dubious characters, Leo finds that the very bedrock which surrounds Biggnarbriggs Hall is poisoned by an ancient malevolence that will have its terrible reckoning.

'A captivating murder mystery novel that keeps you guessing and racing through to get to the end faster than a game of Cluedo. A riveting, gothic-esque novel that delights in grabbing you by the hand and pulling you along. Thrillers tend to follow-the same formula and it's enjoyable to read one that strays off the well-trodden path' * Dundee Courier * 'This new murder mystery willkeep you guessing. The author creates characters that are refreshingly different while effortlessly weaving Scottish history into this book, making for an intriguing narrative. Delightfully vivid' * Scottish Field * 'Scots crime writer McGarry returns with his second novel in the Leo Moran mystery series. His entertaining follow-up sees a mourning Moran encountering visions at a southern Scotland estate after a local girl goes missing. Well written and thrilling' * Daily Record *
