Synopsis (Amazon)

When terrorist attacks occur in the West of Scotland, Macleod and McGrath work amidst the multitude of agencies to uncover the organisation behind it. But just as Macleod makes a startling revelation, a crisis at home removes him from the team. With the country’s agencies chasing down a blind alley, can newly promoted DS McGrath pull her team together and stop one final killing?

There’s no wilder face of terror than the one with a personal agenda!

My Take

I have really developed a liking for this series. MacLeod and McGrath have come a long way from the first in the series, and I strongly recommend reading them in order, so that you see the full character development, as well as the way new members are added to the team.

The action begins with a small cruise ship taking holiday makers down the Caledonian Canal, along Loch Ness, and through Fort Augustus before arriving at a breath-taking series of locks known as Neptune's Staircase. A sniper picks off a German tourist and a couple of other passengers. Some investigators are later inclined to think the lone gunman is an Irish terrorist but who would target Scotland? 

From the beginning McLeod believes the agenda is more personal but as more incidents occur, the bombing of the bridge to Skye, and then an incident with a bow and arrow, the Irish terrorist paramilitary theory gains more credence. 

The case is challenging for McLeod's team, and then becomes more so when he has to rush home after an incident that puts his partner in hospital, and McGrath has to take over.

An excellent read.

My rating: 4.5
