"After a thousand years of bloody history, death in the Highlands is nothing new. But it should not be happening now. Jean Fairbairn has a coin from Prince Charlie's hoard, and a story. Until the story comes to murder, and Jean isn't just a reporter, she's a prime suspect. Nose to nose with Chief Inspector Alasdair Cameron and self-proclaimed ""Charles"" expert Rick macLyon, jean finds herself entangled in a story that's getting grimmer than the Dark Mile by Loch Arkaig and more twisted than Stuart politics. And it's all too likely to end with Jean trapped by a murderer, on her way to becoming the MacLyon mansion's newest ghost."
