A novel by

 
 
The fourth book in the highly acclaimed Alexander Seaton series. 1635: Europe is in the grip of the brutal territorial and religious struggle of the Thirty Years' War. Fear stalks the town of Aberdeen as a ship recruiting for the wars lies at anchor in the river mouth. A sinister figure watches from the shadows as apprehension grows and culminates in the disappearance of the son of a Highland chief - a student of Alexander Seaton.

When the frozen body of a young woman is found in the garden of a prominent citizen, Alexander becomes more deeply embroiled. The figure in the shadows has come for him; he can hide from his past no longer.

Shona MacLean has a PhD in history from Aberdeen University, specialising in 16th and 17th-century Scottish history. She lives in Banff, Scotland, with her husband and four children.
