Gianetta is hoping for a tranquil interlude on the Isle of Skye. Bruised by divorce from her writer husband, she seeks solace in the island's savage beauty. But a vicious murder throws the community into confusion - and then her ex-husband arrives...
Midnight on Skye: a young crofter's daughter is cruelly and ritually murdered on the bleak Scottish mountainside. Very soon Gianetta Brooke, a guest at the deceptively idyllic Camasunary Hotel nearby, finds herself tangled in a web of rising fear and suspicion. When she discovers that her ex-husband has booked into the same hotel, the peaceful holiday for which she had hoped takes on quite another complexion.
This Mary Stewart mystery was written in 1956. A good solid mystery with lots of wonderful characters and suspects. The lovely setting of Skye and rock climbing. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Ms. Stewart was born in England but lived many years in Scotland and this story is set in Scotland so this one counts for Read Scotland 2015. That brings me up to 15. 10 more to go!
