Merciless Dead


    It all began as a tribute to the memory of families ruthlessly driven from their crofts during the Highland Clearances. A descendant who has done well for himself overseas decides to fund a sentimental rebuilding of his ancestors' home, calling in experts to authenticate each relic and to trace the legendary Ross Tapestry.But when one of his most bitter enemies is murdered, and one of his most conscientious employees finds holes in the basic story and dies near a tragic historic site, the researchers find themselves caught up in a menacing game.What dangers now lie in wait for Lady Torrance, as her historical expertise becomes less important than her earlier training as Detective Inspector Lesley Gunn in more violent situations, and 'The Laird and the Law' face a deadly showdown?
