Series: Murder Most

Summary (From the publisher):

Invoking a thorough understanding of history, folklore, landscape, and national character, this anthology explores the dark side of Scotland in 20 spirited tales of murder, mayhem, and mystery written by acclaimed writers of the past 200 years. With settings that range from Highland glens to modern urban cityscapes, each of these stories is a masterpiece of intrigue and detection. Classic fare such as The Two Drovers by Sir Walter Scott and The Body-Snatcher by Robert Louis Stevenson blend well with modern mysteries like Iceman by Peter Turnbull, The Case of the Parr Children by Antonia Fraser, or The Killing Game, a full-length novel by Bill Knox. Challenge your mind as you follow the investigations of Inspector Colin Thane, reporter Jemima Shore, and other great detectives of fiction devised by some of the cleverest literary talents ever assembled for a Scottish fling.
