Volatile times in a volatile city...Polish-born detective Dania Gorska, seconded to Dundee's Specialist Crime Division, is called to investigate three murders in which the bodies of the victims are posed in different ways; the first is dressed and staged as a scarecrow while the other two are displayed in an equally bizarre manner. She is unable to establish what links them but clues point to their having been members of a druidic cult - something which her investigative journalist brother Marek is pursuing for his paper.Although Dania's main focus is in solving the murders, she finds herself increasingly drawn to the case of two runaway teenage girls. But when she learns that they were members of the same druid group, she becomes convinced that their disappearance is linked to the murders. And her growing suspicion that the local laird of Backmuir is involved puts her in grave danger...Praise for Hania Allen: 'Nicely nasty in all the right places' Craig Robertson'Captivating characters and an intriguing plot. A great new find for crime fans' Lin Anderson 'Pitch-perfect . . . a witty, tense crime novel written in a highly readable style' Russel D McLean

About the Author

Hania Allen was born in Liverpool, but has lived in Scotland longer than anywhere else, having come to love the people and the country (despite nine months of rain and three months of bad weather). Of Polish descent, her father was stationed in St Andrews during the war, and spoke so fondly of the town that she applied to study at the University.She has worked as a researcher, a mathematics teacher, an IT officer and finally in senior management, a post she left to write full time. She is the author of the Von Valenti novels and now lives in a fishing village in Fife.

Reviews

Pitch-perfect, combined with a clever mystery, but more than that, it's a witty, tense crime novel written in a highly readable style * Russel D McLean, author of the J McNee detective series * Captivating characters and an intriguing plot. A great new find for crime fans * Lin Anderson, author of the Rhona MacLeod crime series * Nicely nasty in all the right places, this is an assured debut by Hania Allen... The story rattles along until bringing the curtain down with an unnerving twist * Craig Robertson, author of Cold Grave, Random, and Witness the Dead *
