♥️ ‘ . . . an absolute delight . . . these are the perfect reads for a night by the fire’ ♥️ Scotsman

War is hovering on the horizon, and Dandy Gilver wants nothing more than to keep her friends and family close. But then a call in the night places her oldest friend Daisy at the centre of a murder investigation. With her friend’s future on the line, Dandy and her fellow sleuth Alec Osbourne must race to prove her innocence.

But when they reach the idyllic Scottish village of Dirleton, residents confirm a woman was seen at the crime scene – an ancient stone called the louping stane, still spattered with the victim’s blood. And the longer the detectives spend in the village the more they question Daisy’s involvement. They’re not getting the answers they need, but are they asking the right questions? . . .


Praise for the Dandy Gilver series
Everything I adore
McPherson's wit has been compared to that of PG Wodehouse or Nancy Mitford, and her finely researched and choreographed narratives to the work of Agatha Christie . . . an absolute delight . . . these are the perfect reads for a night by the fire
An absolute must for anyone who likes cosy historical mysteries
Crime Review
Plenty of twists to keep you guessing
The Bookbag
A deliriously fun tale, flawlessly written
The 1930s setting is skilfully evoked and there are shades of Agatha Christie in the plotting
Praise for The Witching Hour!
Another brilliant mystery, I love this duo so much, and darling Hugh with his stiff upper lip
