Malice in the Highlands by Graham Thomas


Crime, investigation, punishment. They're all in a day's work to Detective Chief Superintendent Erskine Powell of New Scotland Yard. As a member of the Yard's Murder Squad, Powell tracks miscreants all over London.

Now, seeking distance from the criminal constituency—and the bureaucratic drudgery of the Yard—Powell embarks on a salmon-fishing competition in the Scottish Highlands. There, in the castle-dotted countryside along the picturesque River Spey, he seeks peace and seclusion. But a cold-blooded murderer soon turns Powell's haven into a busman's holiday—and a quiet anglers' paradise becomes just as deadly as the mean streets of London.

"Graham Thomas knows his Highlands, lochs, glens, and salmon fishing - and I followed the ingenious twists and turns of this tidy plot, I felt I had been transported back to chillingly beautiful, remote country. With its accuracy of detail, 'Malice in the Highlands' is fiercely intelligent mortal mystery."
