|By||C. F. Peterson|
When a refugee child is ritually murdered in a Highland village, the reluctant young laird of Duncul Castle sets out to discover how his childhood friend became a killer, why the local drug dealer wants him dead, and what dark secrets a green-energy multi-national are hiding in the surrounding hills.
C. F. Peterson was born in Inverness. He lived in Africa and worked in bio-chemistry before returning home to the Scottish Highlands where he currently works as a builder. He is married and has five children. This is his first book.
