What you need to know before your trail

When forensic scientist Rhona MacLeod is brought in to analyse a shallow grave on Scotland’s west coast, she is disturbed by a bundle of twigs crafted into a stickman and left in the victim’s mouth.

Then, when a young woman is reported missing from a nearby campsite with another sinister figurine left in her van, it seems that someone is targeting wild campers. An idyllic coastline known for providing peace and serenity, now the area is a hunting ground.

As her investigation proceeds, Rhona is forced to reconsider her closest bonds. Rumours of sexual assault offences by serving police officers are circling in Glasgow, which may include her trusted colleague DS Michael McNab. Could it be true, or is someone looking to put him out of action?

All the while a young woman’s life is on the line and the clock is ticking . .



Travel Guide

Isle of Skye and Arisaig


Oh if Rhona and Lin do not take you to some of the most stunning places in Scotland. This time we head to the Scottish Highlands to the small village of Arisaig. There are a few campsites around these parts and I can vouch that they are lovely in real life! I have also stayed in a caravan park here and they are equally lovely. The views! – ah there is nothing like them!

Isle of Skye

Rhona is here on holiday in Sleat when we first meet her and there are gorgeous descriptions of Knoydart and the Mallaig ferry.

This is THE place to go camping in real life. Ignore the murders and funny goings on in this novel – go there for real and read this novel whilst camping for one heck of a booktrail!
