Even his own honeymoon can't keep Scotland Yard's Chief Inspector Callum MacGregor from being entwined in a murder investigation.
Compelled by a fierce Highland squall to seek shelter in a rickety old inn on the storm-stirred flank of Loch Ness, Callum and his new bride, Laura, soon find themselves wrapped in a mystery. A murdered girl, a missing student, a band of travelers lead Callum through a tale of deceit and intrigue as old, it seems, as the rugged Highlands themselves. Despite having to rely on witnesses as inhospitable as the Highlands weather, and with only an odd assortment of clues as murky as the dark waters of the Loch, Callam doggedly pursues truth--and the murderer.
Recalling the romance and suspense of "The High Wayman," Storm and Deceit is totally captivating. This latest in author Susan Evans McCloud's mystery series lives up to the standards of suspense, romance, and that touch of the old country that you've come to expect from her. [publisher's blurb]
