Blurb: 
Invoking a thorough understanding of history, folklore, landscape, and national character, this anthology explores the dark side of Scotland in 20 spirited tales of murder, mayhem, and mystery written by acclaimed writers of the past 200 years. With settings that range from Highland glens to modern urban cityscapes, each of these stories is a masterpiece of intrigue and detection.
