    S.G. MacLean(Author)

Banff, Scotland in the 1620s. A young man walks unsteadily through the streets. Is he just drunk or is there something more sinister happening? When he collapses in front of two sisters on that dark, wet night, the women guess that he's been poisoned.

His body is discovered in the house of Alexander Seaton - a fallen minister, the discovery of whose clandestine love affair has left him disgraced.

Why was the body in Seaton's house? And why would anyone want to murder this likeable young man? Seaton sets out to find answers, embarking on a journey not only through the darkest part of other men's souls, but also his own.

'Such is the quality of the recreation, not only of the reeking ebb and flow of everyday life but also of the period mindset that it's easy to believe Satan is walking abroad ... this is an accomplished and thought-provoking debut' Guardian. (Guardian)

    A lot of characters introduced at start with unfamiliar job titles, difficult to keep track of who was who and the pace was slow. Worth persevering though as it picks up pace. Unusually l had no idea of the murderer but that may have been due to the earlier confusion! Period detail absorbing and very convincing.

    I bought this after I read the Seeker (which i thoroughly enjoyed). Parts of this book are excellent, but is is too long and quite heavy in places. I won't read the other three in this series.

    I gave up on this which is not like me, I found it quite tedious. Might pick it up again and review at a later date.

    A riveting read with interesting characters, an obviously well researched background and a very good storyline.
