Publisher's Summary

It was a dream come true. Susan loved all things Scottish. So, when the opportunity presented itself, there was no question in her mind that she would go on the archaeological dig in the Highlands. A cryptic message slipped to Susan by a sinister soap box orator was the first puzzle. Why did he choose her? Why was he chasing her? And why were she and the handsome young laird Jamie Erskine suddenly being pursued by the police who wanted to talk to them about...murder?
"Jamie stood by the desk. 'You aren't afraid of me, are you?'"
Susan considered the question. It was the first time it had occurred to her that she might have reasons to be afraid; but the accumulated facts suddenly washed over her and took her breath away.

Ms Peters is always fun!

This is a ride through the history of Scotland, done "Elizabeth Peters" style. Even though some of the story can be dated, one doesn't mind. It is more like a trip into a different time. Ms Conlin does her usual fine job of narration. Ms Peters writes just to the near side of parody. I prefer a narrator like Ms Conlin who doesn't push the verbiage over the edge.

Did not want to put it down.

I found this to be an action-packed tale and thoroughly enjoyed the narrator. I have been listening to the Amelia Peabody-Emerson books and while interesting, they have very similar plots and not a great deal of action. This was a nice change. Characters w/ a sense of humor even more witty than the above mentioned series.
