Shona MacLean is in her early 40s and has a PhD in history from Aberdeen University, specialising in 16th and 17th century Scottish history. She was encouraged to write by her late uncle, the author Alistair MacLean. She lives in Banff with her husband and four children. This is her first novel.
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 that Satan is walking abroad.

This could be the premise for a contemporary crime thriller - except that the novel is set in the 1620's and steeped in the history of that period - Scotland on Sunday.
