Carriage of Justice by Gerald Hammond
In the Scottish Highlands, foxes are a gamekeeper’s worst enemy — except for poachers.
Deborah Fellowes and her Uncle Ronnie think they’ve caught a poacher — but they’ve actually stumbled across something much more sinister. Their “poacher” may turn out to be the perpetrator of a notorious murder that has never been solved… Scottish dialect, Scotch whisky and Highland ambience abound in this charming mystery.
Born in 1926, Gerald Hammond lived in Scotland, where he retired from his profession as an architect in 1982 to pursue his love of shooting and fishing and to write full time. After his first novel, Fred in Situ, was published in 1965, Gerald became a prolific author with over 70 published novels. Most of his novels were published under his own name, but he also wrote under the pseudonyms Arthur Douglas and Dalby Holden.
