A Killer Housewarming in the Scottish HighlandsWhen barrister Rex Graves invites a group of friends to Gleneagle Lodge, he doesn't anticipate the arrival of an old flame--much less a dead body or serial killer.

Rex must use his skills of intellect, observation and logic to save Alistair's career and bring the murderer to justice.

As soon as that’s done, we’ll leave. This whole thing gives me the willies.” “I’ll get that,” Alistair said when the doorbell rang. “It might be John.” “Aye, it makes my skin crawl to think how that child molester was after Flora!” Mrs. Allerdice burst out, handkerchief trembling in her
