During a Christmas party, Euphemia Martins – together with Bertram Stapleford and manservant Rory McLeod – is tasked by the slippery government agent Fitzroy with doing a little snooping at the Staplefords’ Highland Lodge. When Euphemia discovers the purposes of the charade for which she has been demoted back to a maid, she is furious. There are plans afoot – plans which involve signing the Official Secrets Act ... Meanwhile, Rory still isn't speaking to her and Bertram is more interested in growing his awful new beard. The arrival at the Lodge of four mysterious 'Mr Smiths' – and some outrageous proposals for Scotland’s future – raises tensions to boiling point, and that's not even mentioning the German spy lurking in the woods, or the accident with some hot soup ... But when the inevitable dead body turns up, they must all work together or find themselves jailed for murder.
'So he was dead before being dumped in the loch?' 'I'd say so. But I'll know for
sure once I carry out the PM.' 'You see anything that might suggest cause of death?' She ignored him as she pressed down on the tongue and thrust her
fingers as ...

St. Andrews, Scotland: When a man's preserved body is discovered in a whisky ageing cask in the local Gleneden Distillery, DCI Andy Gilchrist and his partner, DS Jessie Janes, are assigned to the investigation. But when the dead man is identified as Hector Dunmore, the once heir-apparent of Gleneden Distillery, their investigation takes a dramatic turn, for Dunmore was reported missing 25 years earlier when his Land Rover was found abandoned on the outskirts of Mallaig, almost two hundred miles away on the Scottish west coast. Why hide a body in a 25-year ageing cask? And who would want Dunmore dead? Suspicion falls on Duncan Milne, the distillery manager at the time, but when Gilchrist learns that Milne died under suspicious circumstances the year Dunmore disappeared, he suspects they are looking at a double murderer. Gilchrist's efforts to resolve the murders forces him to dig deep into the Dunmore family's past, only to come up against a frightening killer who will stop at nothing to keep the darkest of family secrets from ever coming to light. PRAISE FOR T.F. MUIR: 'Rebus did it for Edinburgh. Laidlaw did it for Glasgow. Gilchrist might just be the bloke to put St Andrews on the crime fiction map.' Daily Record 'A truly gripping read, with all the makings of a classic series.' Mick Herron 'Gripping and grisly, with plenty of twists and turns that race along with black humour.' Craig Robertson 'DCI Gilchrist gets under your skin. Though, determined, and a bit vulnerable, this character will stay with you long after the last page.' Anna Smith 'Gripping!'

Military historian Gene Salecker recounts the events and conditions leading up to the explosion, then re-creates the drama directly after: men swimming through flaming oil, small craft desperately trying to rescue the injured, and subsequent explosions throwing flaming debris everywhere.

“A sharp analysis of the quest for unreal critters―cryptids, as they are called―and the people who pursue them . . . entertaining and thoroughly documented.” —The Wall Street Journal Throughout our history, humans have been captivated by mythic beasts and legendary creatures. Tales of Bigfoot, the Yeti, and the Loch Ness monster are part of our collective experience. Now comes a book from two dedicated investigators that explores and elucidates the fascinating world of cryptozoology. Daniel Loxton and Donald R. Prothero have written an entertaining, educational, and definitive text on cryptids, presenting the arguments both for and against their existence and systematically challenging the pseudoscience that perpetuates their myths. After examining the nature of science and pseudoscience and their relation to cryptozoology, Loxton and Prothero take on Bigfoot; the Yeti, or Abominable Snowman, and its cross-cultural incarnations; the Loch Ness monster and its highly publicized sightings; the evolution of the Great Sea Serpent; and Mokele Mbembe, or the Congo dinosaur. They conclude with an analysis of the psychology behind the persistent belief in paranormal phenomena, identifying the major players in cryptozoology, discussing the character of its subculture, and considering the challenge it poses to clear and critical thinking in our increasingly complex world. “As valuable for its analysis of the hunted as it is for the light it shines on the still-hopeful hunters.” —Publishers Weekly “Highly recommended for readers looking for scientific but accessible evaluations of the existence of five notable cryptids that have captured our imaginations.” —Library Journal (starred review)

Phillips' dissertation locates the Neolithic cairns and chambers of the three most northern counties of mainland Scotland (Ross, Sutherland and Caithness) in order to investigate the place and role of these monuments within such a forbidding landscape and to examine what they reveal about the Neolithic view of the world. An extensive gazetteer of sites, supported throughout by plans and maps, follows a discussion of the type, chronology, location and grouping of monuments.
