Murders at Blackwaterfoot
Based at Lamlash on Arran, PC Rory Murdoch has a minimal caseload, giving him ample time to think about his daughter, Ella, and her special needs. Then three murders occur in close succession. His supervising officer, mainland-based DI Samuel Grant, is not supportive. Can Rory stand up to this bully and undermining superior?
Rory receives a letter from Belgium and Ella has a remarkable insight both of which lead to High Court trials in Ayr. How can Rory cope with three murder trials while his mind is preoccupied on greater matters?
This is a fast-paced story set in the stunningly beautiful island of Arran with elements of humour, pathos, romance and great sadness.
This was a marvellous story and I even shed a tear or two. Morag Ritchie

A Reluctant Spy
Now a documentary in German, French and English after Mathilde Vuillermoz secured a deal with the French film company ARTE.
Hilda Campbell was born in the north of Scotland in 1889. She married German national Dr Willy Buntner Richter in 1912. They honeymooned in Scotland and lived in Hamburg. Dr Richter died in 1938. After visiting her ailing parents, she returned to Germany just before the Second World War began. She became a double agent, controlled by Gerhard Eicke in Germany and Lawrence Thornton in Britain. How could she cope under the strain, with her son Otto in the German Army? And her evidence was challenged at the Nuremburg Trials. Learn of her post-war life, which took her abroad, as a British Ambassador’s wife.
This is an extraordinary story based on the life of the author’s great aunt, Hilda, including several authentic accounts.
‘A Reluctant Spy is just what the best historical novels should be; the individual’s story from the heart of great events.’
