And inscriptions are found on stones near the corpse.And before the meaning of these strange marks can be deciphered, another body is found.Are these attacks connected to the re-opening of the Brora mine?Will Solveig’s plan bring peace and prosperity to the people of Sutherland?Or has she started something much more sinister…?‘Deadly Prospects’ is a well-researched and satisfying mystery story that explores the rich history and heritage of the Scottish Highlands.A engrossing page-turner that takes the reader back into a different place and time. - Robert Foster, best-selling author of The Lunar Code.Clio Gray lives in the Highlands.
