‘A clever blend of fact and fiction, with engaging characters, gripping action, tension and drama galore, and a dash of romance. For lovers of Scotland and Scottish history this is a great read.’  Margaret Skea, Winner of the Beryl Bainbridge Award

‘The darker side of St Andrews Castle’s history, written with such delightful detail I could almost taste and smell the medieval streets of the historic town! …it’s such a pleasure to read a well written tale, with believable characters and vivid historical descriptions.’  Lynsey Maxwell
