Two Women, Two Murders . . .

A stunning and suspenseful story of families, betrayal, and a community divided.

Nothing is ever quite at peace on Scotland's Black Isle--the Traveling people are forever at odds with the locals, the fishermen have nothing in common with the farmers, and the villages have no connection with the town. But when two deaths occur on the same day, involving the same families from the same estate--the Black Isle seems as forbidding as its name.

Joanne Ross, typist at the Highland Gazette , is torn whether to take on the plum task of reporting on these murders--after all, the woman at the center of both crimes is one of her closest friends. Joanne knows the story could be her big break, and for a woman in the mid-1950s--a single mother, no less--good work is hard to come by.

But the investigation by the staff on the Gazette reveals secrets that will forever change this quiet, remote part of the Highlands. The ancient feudal order is crumbling, loyalties are tested, friendships torn apart, and the sublime beauty of the landscape will never seem peaceful again.

If this is Scottish suspense then... Scotland is one tame if not boring country. This book is too long for what little suspense there is. This is for sure not cutting edge drama. There is almost no interest in reading this piece of quaint "Peyton Place".

Just try to figure 'who did it'. Bet you don't.

Poor editing pulls down the flow of the story, but entertaining enough for a rainy weekend.
