Another good mystery by G.M. Malliet. Like the first book in this series the plot was very interesting and the characters were very well written. The ending was extremely surprising. I did not think that the murderer was the person it turned out to be. I also liked the relationship between St. Just and Portia, it showed a softer side of him.

A bunch of mystery writer's in a Scottish castle during a snowstorm. What could go wrong?

the suspects gather /
ghosts comb their long, sil'vry hair /
I *like* this writer!
