"Land developer Ken Stafford decides to build a highway access road through the ancient peat bog in Northumberland, much to the dismay of its owner, environmentalists, and several protestors. When a centuries-old body is discovered remarkably intact, many feel that more research and exploration of the area is warranted ... Arnold Landon, an archeologist, and his assistant Portia are summoned to evaluate the area when a more recent body (that of one of Stafford's most vocal opponents) surfaces shortly thereafter. Now Landon and Portia must also hunt a killer, in addition to hunting for the bog's archeological significance."--Editor's review

In darkness, a body is removed from a country cemetery: the body of a murdered man.

The investigation represents a challenge for experienced Superintendent Lambert and his team. Never before had he investigated a murder perpetrated over a year earlier. Gradually he unearths a network of malice and deceit. Craven's son and daughter, his housekeeper and the American who was his friend for almost fifty years, all had reason to wish Craven dead - and the opportunity to kill him

"Every August thousands of tourists and performers flood into Edinburgh for its famous festival. But this year, on the very first day, an explosion rocks Princes Street, and a man is killed. A few hours later, a threatening letter is delivered to the Secretary of State - apparently from a freedom group - demanding political separation from England. Assistant Chief Constable Bob Skinner, head of CID, quickly assembles his team, with SAS backup. Yet, despite a huge security check, the escalating situation claims its second victim. Skinner begins to suspect that this is no ordinary group of bloodthirsty fanatics, but skilled professionals with access to highly sophisticated weapons; a trained task force with an agenda that now threatens the ancient honour of Scotland."--Container
