Présentation de l'éditeur
“An enjoyable tale that I found difficult to put down. The lead character, Mark Campbell, is well developed and believably flawed while the story line is suitably spooky.”
- 4/5, Scottish Field, February 2014 issue
Mark Campbell, historian and author, is desperate to finish his new book on the infamous Highland Clearances when his researcher mysteriously disappears. Abandoning his depressed wife and new baby, Mark rushes to a remote Scottish village to investigate.
But when he gets there, all is not what it seems. Who is the attractive landowner, Lady Elizabeth Ruthven, and why is she housebound on a remote loch island? Why are wild dogs hunting him? And what really happened to the researcher?
Mark's investigation is soon overwhelmed by a series of unnerving events, plunging him into a very real nightmare. Can he make it back home to his family in one piece?
SHOT THROUGH THE HEART is a gothic mystery set in the Scottish Highlands, weaving the supernatural with history, which will grip you right through to its brutal conclusion.
Biographie de l'auteur
Ed James writes crime fiction novels, predominantly the Scott Cullen series of police procedurals set in Edinburgh and the surrounding Lothians - the first four are available now, starting with GHOST IN THE MACHINE which has been downloaded over 100,000 times and is currently free. His next book - SHOT THROUGH THE HEART - features vampires and werewolves but not Scott Cullen and is out on 31-October. Ed lives in the East Lothian countryside, 25 miles east of Edinburgh, with his girlfriend, six rescue moggies, two retired greyhounds, a flock of ex-battery chickens and eight rescue ducks across two breeds and two genders (though the boys don't lay eggs). He works in IT for a living, commuting from Edinburgh to London every week (not every day) and writes mainly on public transport. His blog - edjamesauthor.com - is a log of his work, his thoughts on his writing, and a place for his word count OCD to express itself. His music tastes will creep in now and again.
