1635, Aberdeen. A girl lies dead in a frozen garden. A young man goes missing after a drunken brawl and a sinister cloaked figure watches from the shadows . . .

The missing student, son of a Highland chief, is one of Alexander Seaton’s pupils. When the young man’s companion turns up bruised and bloodied, suspicion mounts that he has murdered his friend. But Alexander is convinced that there’s another explanation.

Drawn ever deeper into the mystery, Alexander realises that the man in the shadows is known to him and that the strange events in the town are linked to his own past.

A gripping historical thriller from the bestselling author of The Bookseller of Inverness. Perfect for fans of Rory Clements and S. J. Parris.
