Scotland in a post-viral apocalyptic future

In a dystopian UK ravaged by a virus, Scotland has closed its border.

The Ardnamurchan peninsula is surrounded by a fence that protects the rest of the country from the wolves and bears that roam the mountains and woods of this rewilded big-game hunting estate.

DI Rhona Ballantyne returns to her Scottish roots to investigate the death of a man killed by a bear on the estate.

The apocalyptic backdrop and murder plot seem slightly disjointed and the tale is a slow burner, but if you have the patience the twists and turns are worth the wait.

The Wolf Hunters, by Amanda Mitchison, published by Fledgling Press, £9.99.
