Reluctantly, Christine agrees to fly up to Stornoway, where her mother was last seen. Her arrival is followed by the suspicious death of one of the islanders. What unfolds is a deepening involvement in the life of the community, an unexpected reconnection with her mother, and a nefarious plot against one of the young princes, who is planning a visit to the island.

Great engaging story but some very dodgy accents!
The story is really well written and keeps you guessing to the end with lots of twists and turns.
The performance was great and she did a supberb job of differentiating the different characters. Although I have to say that a few of the accents were decidedly dodgy.
