Loved everything about this book.  Love Scotland, Love Edinburgh, Love a man in a kilt.  Throw a fair amount of history into the mix and it's a winner.  Will definitely be reading the rest of this series!

My first read by Lillian Stewart Carl, but not my last. Well-crafted story, characters and sense of place. One can almost hear the locals chatting in the background while the reader watches the mist rise beyond the slate gray waters of the loch. Jean, fresh from a friendly divorce and a brutal academic scandal back in the US, arrived in Edinburgh looking for a fresh start. When she partners in a small magazine focusing on all things Scot, she becomes it's chief correspondant for daily life, travel, history, and the occasional ghost story. Jean, you see, has a "gift" she keeps to herself. She knows when ghosts are near. And in Scotland, they are always near. When a coin linked to one of Scotland ' s greatest historical figures falls into her hands, Jean finds herself immersed in madness, murder, a lost treasure, and the blood soaked history of Scotland.
