Book Description

Beth Ryan goes to the Highlands to sell her inherited estate to find all that remains is a Victorian shooting lodge occupied by Calum MacRaven, local doctor and impoverished Laird of Glenrannoch - a whirlwind romance ensues, or so it seems. They marry but Beth has suspicions regarding a family feud, an abandoned baby and his ex-mistress Morven plus his ward Rona. Is the monster in the Loch, who allegedly drowned Calum’s first wife, on the rampage again and will Beth learn the truth too late? Her greatest problem becomes staying alive.

More About the Author

Alanna Knight MBE was born on Tyneside of Scots-Irish parentage. Her first award-winning novel 'Legend of the Loch' was published in 1969 and she has now written more than sixty novels (including sixteen in the acclaimed Inspector Faro series and seven featuring his daughter Rose McQuinn). In an impressive writing career spanning over forty years she began with historical novels and in 1988 launched into historical crime with Inspector Faro and his daughter Rose. All are available as e-books.

She also wrote a series of books about Tam Eildor, a time-travelling detective, and Alanna is a life-long fan and an authority on Robert Louis Stevenson. In 'A Violent Passion' she writes about his marriage to Fanny Osbourne. This is also available in e-books.

Alanna lives in Edinburgh, beneath Arthur's Seat, in the dramatic surroundings of Scottish history. A founding member and Honorary President of the Scottish Association of Writers and the Edinburgh Writers' Club and member of Crime writers' Association, she enjoys researching her books, loves travelling, walking, painting and talking to readers in libraries.

In 2014 she was awarded an MBE for services to literature.

Her books, also in large print and audio rate, are amongst the most borrowed.

Praise from Ian Rankin:' Alanna Knight could hardly be better with a crime novelist's insight into motive and aftermath.'

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read 10 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a more up to date story from Alanna Knight, a bit predictable but a good read if you like her slightly quirky, supernatural stories.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good escapist read 23 Jan. 2013
By Isia - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was not a bad book to fill in time and is primarily aimed at women (I cannot imagine it appealing to a man). It fits all the requirements of an escapist romance read - a bit of mystery, a hint of supernatural, a castle, a taciturn hero, etc. without bothering too much about character development or being true to life. If you are not looking for a masterpiece in literary fiction this book could be for you. I gave it 3 stars as I like the heroines of my escapist novels to either have a bit of strength of character or a sense of humour, so I fond this one getting on my nerves a bit.
