Really good. Wonderful setting in the scottish isles. Got me to look up some of the places and islands there after I was finished. I also pretty much read this one in one swoop. No putting down for too long, so it definitely kept my attention. First I read from this author and will not be the last. Gritty, sensual and real is how I would describe this one. The historical data is not just fluffy wallpaper either. Good stuff.
