North Sea Requiem

North Sea Requiem

(The fourth book in the Joanne Ross series)
A novel by

The fourth gripping, evocative, and lyrical mystery in the acclaimed series that brilliantly evokes the Scottish Highlands of the 1950s. A. D. Scott's extraordinary mystery novels have been called "beautifully written and atmospheric" (Rhys Bowen, New York Times bestselling author of Hush Now, Don't You Cry), "a visit with an old friend in front of a fireplace on a cold wintry night" (Suspense Magazine), and "must-reads" (Booklist). In her latest, Scott pits the staff of the Highland Gazette against their greatest adversary yet in a mystery that her fans will relish. When a woman discovers a severed leg in the boot of one of the local hockey player's uniforms, it's a big scoop for the Highland Gazette. But reporter Joanne Ross wants a front page story of her own, and she hopes to find in Mae Bell, an American jazz singer whose husband disappeared in an aircraft accident five years ago and who is searching the Highlands for her husband's colleagues. Things take a very sinister turn when Nurse Urquhart, who discovered the severed limb, suffers a hideous and brutal attack. Even stranger, she was the recipient of letters warning her to keep her nose out of someone's business - letters that Mae Bell and the staff of the Highland Gazette also received. What could it all mean? Unfolding against a gorgeously rendered Scottish countryside, North Sea Requiem captures the mores and issues of another era, especially in Joanne Ross - a woman wrestling with divorce, career, and a boss who wants to be more than just her superior. The result is a poignant, often haunting mix of violence, loss, and redemption in a narrative full of unnerving plot twists and unforgettable characters.
