'From its blood-stained opening, the latest chapter in the tumultuous life of DS Alice Rice proves a compelling read' – Scottish Field

'A tangled web of estranged family members, closeted lifestyles and windfarm nimbyism...really did keep me guessing to the end’ – Stirling Observer

When the body of a retired sheriff is discovered in his grand house in the New Town of Edinburgh, Detective Sergeant Alice Rice finds herself hunting his killer. The search leads her to an unfamiliar world where wind-farm developers – with millions of pounds at stake – and protesters face each other with daggers drawn. Just as Alice thinks an answer is beginning to emerge, the sheriff’s lover is killed in an apparent hit-and-run accident.

An unlikely coincidence or, as the search widens, is Alice now investigating a double murderer?

Gillian Galbraith was an advocate specialising in medical negligence cases and was the legal correspondent for the Scottish Farmer magazine. She has also written on legal matters for The Times. She currently lives near Kinross.
