Born and raised in Scotland, Iain is a writer of classic mysteries.The World Wars left Iain's family with generations of widows. As a result, Iain has always been interested in the tangible effects of history on family dynamics and in the power of narrative to awaken those long dead. For the characters in Murder at Malenfer, he drew on childhood reminiscences and verbal family history--though he hastens to add that his family had barely a penny, far less a manor, and any ghosts dwelt only in memory.
Stranded on Lord Black’s wondrous estate, the disparate guests have more in common than they first realize.
Accused by a mysterious letter of having committed crimes in their past, one by one they are hunted down. But who is the killer? Will any of them live to find out?
Note: This modern re-telling of Agatha Christie's masterpiece draws inspiration from the remote gothic qualities of the Scottish highlands in homage to the classic whodunit.
Easton Bay has risked everything to protect me, but that doesn’t mean that he didn’t do what they had accused him of.
I am in love with him. I am supposed to be his wife, but this changes everything. The King has turned on him. I’m Easton’s only hope.
But it’s only a matter of time before they turn on me, too.
Is my fate is sealed?
