The Secret Portrait

(2005)
(The first book in the Jean Fairbairn / Alasdair Cameron Mystery series)
A novel by

 
Death in the Highlands.

It came by claymore and cannon fire in 1745, when Bonnie Prince Charlie's men died a Culloden, and the last Stuart fled back to France, leaving his followers to death and his gold hidden in the heather for others to find. After a thousand years of bloody history, death in the Highlands is nothing new. But it should not be happening now.

Jean Fairbairn has a coin from Prince Charlie's hoard, and a story. Until the story comes to murder, and Jean isn't just a reporter, she's a prime suspect. Nose to nose with Chief Inspector Alasdair Cameron an self-proclaimed "Charles" expert Rick MacLyon, Jean finds herself entangled in a story that's getting grimmer than the Dark Mile by Loch Arkaig an more twisted than Stuart politics. And it's all too likely to end with Jean trapped by a murderer, on her way to becoming the MacLyon mansion's newest ghost.
