Leo Moran is not your average private detective. An avowed gourmet and wine connoisseur, he enjoys the pleasures of life to the hilt in the splendid isolation of his West End apartment. Ordinarily, his most pressing concerns involve which vintage of wine to pair with the finest organic steak, but at times he has more unsettling concerns: visions of violent crimes.
Asked by an old acquaintance to investigate a curse which is said to haunt the beautiful Scottish Isle of Sonna, Moran finds himself drawn into an extraordinary drama of
envy, shame and vengeance. He investigates the events of summer 1989, when a group of high-spirited teenagers dabbled in an occult ritual… with tragic consequences. The
teenagers are now in middle age, but acrimony persists over that terrible night. Death strikes again, and Leo realises that his presence on the island is not welcome, and that there are dark forces at work beyond his imagining.
