The Blood is Still is a crime thriller set in Inverness, a refreshing change from Glasgow or Edinburgh.
After a body clothed in 18th-century Highland dress is found on Culloden battlefield, young reporter Rebecca Connolly begins following the story, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead.
The author’s background as a journalist/investigator adds a layer of realism to a story featuring credible characters of real depth who demonstrate that the boundary between good and evil isn’t always clear.
The Blood is Still, by Douglas Skelton, published by Polygon-Birlinn, £8.99.
