Rose McQuinn makes a long anticipated journey to her childhood home on Orkney, but does not find the peace and relaxation she anticipates. An archaeological team stumbles across a body, causing great excitement: could it be the preserved corpse of a 13th-century princess? When the body is identified as the corpse of a local woman, brutally murdered and then thrown into the bog, the calm pleasure of Rose's holiday is shattered. Realising that she probably knows the identity of the killer, Rose is all too aware that in exposing the killer she will destroy the happiness of those closest to her.



"Taut with tension and an air of authority that stems from Knight's expertise in Scottish history." ( Irish Times)

Really good!

I really love novels which are set in Orkney or the Shetlands, so this audio book was on my wishlist for quite a while till I finally downloaded it, because there had only been one review - which was pretty positive - but somehow I wasn't sure.
When I started listening I was disappointed that the plot was set in the 19th century, at first, but I was captured by the development of the events in the story pretty soon, so I kept listening and I really enjoyed the story, for it was never boring and there were quite a few unexpected twists.
The reader has a really pleasant voice and it was fun listening to the passages in which she tried to hint that people had that broad Orkney accent - but don't worry, she just hinted at it!
It's not an audio book that'll blow you away, but it promises a few hours of really good entertainment, so I can recommend it without second thoughts!
