When a man collapses in front of two prostitutes on a dark, wet night, the sisters guess, rightly, that he's been poisoned. So begins this gripping tale set in Scotland in the 1620s. The body of the victim is found in the house of Alexander Seaton, a fallen minister, the discovery of whose clandestine love affair has left him disgraced and deprived him of his vocation. He sets out to solve the crime, embarking on a journey where he encounters a witch hunt, extreme religious prejudice, cruelty, and the darkness in men's souls. At the same time it is a personal quest for Seaton that leads him to rediscover his faith in God and his belief in himself.

Shona MacLean is in her early 40s and has a Ph.D in history from Aberdeen University. She specialises in 16th and 17th century Scottish history. She was encouraged to write by her late uncle, the author Alistair MacLean. She lives in Banff with her husband and four children. This is her first novel.
