In Scott's latest mystery set in the 1950's Scottish Highlands (after 2011's A Double Death on the Black Isle), a newspaper staff is rocked by the death of one of their own. Mrs. Smart, office manager for the Highland Gazette, has been found stabbed to death. Evidence soon leads the police to arrest one of her colleagues, deputy editor Donal McLeod. Budding reporter Joanne Ross, together with her boss, editor McAllister, work together to prove Donal's innocence. But could another one of their colleagues be guilty of murder? A fine character-driven mystery.
