Of Singular Purpose

(1973)
A novel by

 
 
Andrew McDonald had a Highland farm and three sons to inherit it. But the eldest was tragically killed and the second enlisted as a mercenary soldier in the Congo. It was left to the youngest to take over the farm - and to marry attractive Sandra Wise.
For some reason the marriage aroused the disapproval of the family solicitor - something his nephew, Harry, could not understand, especially as he himself was more than half in love with Sandra. And then the second brother, Grant McDonald, returned home.
Soon an act of vengeance for an incident in Grant's mercenary past had shattered the peace of the Highlands and brought tragedy to the farm. Young Harry Wilson, a witness to the horror, was thankful when his own legal Work took him abroad. And there in Brussels a chance professional encounter led him to a reassessment of Grant McDonald and his past.
But this only served to deepen the mystery surrounding the farm and the people who lived there - a mystery as impenetrable as Highland mist. Until Harry stumbled on a secret that laid bare the singular and terrifying purpose of all that had puzzled him.
