The Devil's Cut
When a distillery owner’s body is discovered on a remote Scottish mountain, forensics confirm that he died of natural causes. DI Corstorphine’s concerns are raised, however, when the dead man’s eccentric sister receives a message, apparently from beyond the grave.
The police are dismissive until it appears that the devil itself is intent on attacking other family members. Why is his daughter kept locked and sedated in her room in the baronial mansion? Who or what is stalking his son as he scatters his father’s ashes on lonely summits? And what insanity is behind the horrific attacks in their small Highland town?
DI Corstorphine and his team don’t know what they’re really facing until it’s too late.
