The Blood is Still

The Blood is Still by Douglas Skelton front cover

Tartan noir aficionado Douglas Skelton is on top form in this, the second in his series featuring reporter Rebecca Connolly. And you don’t get much more Scottish than this one – a man wearing full Highland regalia is found dead on the ancient battle site of Culloden Moor, felled by a claymore, no less. Rebecca scents a story and, true to form, lands herself into all manner of bother in her pursuit of it. Get lost in the sweeping landscapes and dastardly plotting of a book to savour like a fine aged malt whisky. Read our full review here.
