Reviews

Delivers everything you could possibly want from a historical crime novel, and then gives you a bit more on top. The Jacobites are a perennially fascinating subject, the ultimate forlorn hope of history, and MacLean provides a fresh and intriguing slant on it, clearly based on rock-solid research. She paints a memorable and densely textured picture of post-Culloden Inverness and its surroundings. She's on home ground here, and it shows. Her best yet * Andrew Taylor *
The Bookseller of Inverness is everything you could ask for from a historical thriller - gripping, immersive and filled with intriguing characters. S.G. MacLean can make any period sing with life. If you've not read her before, this is the perfect place to start * Antonia Hodgson *
S. G. MacLean just goes from strength to strength. The Bookseller of Inverness is an intricately wrought, compulsively page-turning tale of intrigue set in a post-Rebellion Scotland so perfectly conjured and so convincing that you can smell the heather and taste the blood * Craig Russell *
Well-written and well-plotted, MacLean is gifted with a writing style that blends literary storytelling with a fast-paced mystery * Scottish Field *

This is an expertly plotted crime thriller built around the complexities of Jacobite histories: Walter Scott meets tartan noir * The Times *

With its superbly realised scenes and spirited narration, this slice of historical fiction takes you on a wild ride * The Times Audio Book of the Week *
An excellent work of historical fiction: rooted in fact ... with the imagined characters and situations seamlessly stitched into recorded reality * Literary Review *
A gripping and thought-provoking novel. Highly recommended * Historical Novel Review *
A twisting, absorbing plot * Sunday Times *
A triumphant return to Scotland for S. G. MacLean * Historia *
