On a remote Scottish island, American antiques dealer
Kate Hamilton wrestles with her own past while sleuthing
a brutal killing, staged to recreate a two-hundred-year-
old unsolved murder.
Autumn has come and gone on Scotlandâ€™s Isle of Glenroth,
and the islanders gather for the Tartan Ball, the annual
end-of-tourist-season gala. Spirits are high. A recently
published novel about island history has brought hordes
of tourists to the small Hebridean resort community. On
the guest list is American antiques dealer Kate Hamilton.
Kate returns reluctantly to the island where her husband
died, determined to repair her relationship with his
sister, proprietor of the islandâ€™s luxe country house
hotel, famous for its connection with Bonnie Prince
Kate has hardly unpacked when the next morning a body is
found, murdered in a reenactment of an infamous unsolved
murder described in the novelâ€”and the only clue to the
killerâ€™s identity lies in a curiously embellished antique
casket. The Scottish police discount the historical
connection, but when a much-loved local handyman is
arrested, Kate teams up with a vacationing detective
inspector from Suffolk, England, to unmask a killer
determined to rewrite island historyâ€”and Kateâ€™s future.
