Shortlisted for the Bloody Scotland McIlvanney Prize - Debut Scottish Crime 2019 Reviews of The Peat Dead:
"A mystery so redolent of its island setting that you practically smell the peat and whisky on the pages." - Douglas Skelton" This atmospheric crime novel set on Islay gripped me from the start. A book that shows decades-old crimes cast long shadows." - Sarah Ward On the Scottish Hebridean Island of Islay, five corpses are dug up by a peat-cutter. All of them have been shot in the back of the head, execution style. Sent across from the mainland to investigate, Inspector Angus Blue and his team slowly piece together the little evidence they have, and discover the men were killed on a wartime base, over 70 years ago. But there are still secrets worth protecting, and even killing for. Who can Inspector Blue trust?
