♥️ ' . . . an absolute delight . . . these are the perfect reads for a night by the fire' ♥️ Scotsman ♥️ 'Made all the more enjoyable through Dandy, McPherson's witty and hysterical narrator . . . If you're one for twists, turns, and glimpses of social history, this is for you' ♥️ Scottish Field
War is hovering on the horizon, and Dandy Gilver wants nothing more than to keep her friends and family close. But then a call in the night places her oldest friend Daisy at the centre of a murder investigation. With her friend's future on the line, Dandy and her fellow sleuth Alec Osbourne must race to prove her innocence.

But when they reach the idyllic Scottish village of Dirleton, residents confirm a woman was seen at the crime scene - an ancient stone called the louping stane, still spattered with the victim's blood. And the longer the detectives spend in the village the more they question Daisy's involvement. They're not getting the answers they need, but are they asking the right questions? . . .

Readers adore Dandy Gilver:
'Another brilliant mystery, I love this duo so much, and darling Hugh with his stiff upper lip' ⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Reader review

'...after far too long! And in an absolute cracker of a story. My only complaint? I'd like a lot more of Hugh, Grant & Bunty of course! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Reader review

'As with many of the mysteries Dandy is involved with, the folklore of the area is intertwined with the happenings, causing confusion, a spooky atmosphere and spine chilling moments. The atmosphere often only broken by Alec's penchant for a good feed and jolly banter!' ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Reader review

'It was so good to catch up with Dandy Gilver after a long gap since the last book. This latest tale was fast paced and gripping, with plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing right up until the end. The plotline was very good [and] the historical details are also well described and you can almost imagine you are there with Dandy and Alex' ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Reader review
