Today’s Free Kindle eBook: Death by the Mistletoe
It is the middle of June, and a severe electrical storm is predicted to hit the British Isles. In the event, weather conditions are even worse than expected and when the storm ends, it leaves behind more destruction than forecast.Amongst the thirty people killed are nine members of the clergy, struck down by lightning. The storm has been ferocious but is the blizzard alone to blame for these deaths? James McPherson, flame-haired and quick-witted editor of the Campbeltown Gazette, is among the first to realise that something is amiss.Noting that the bodies of many of the clergymen who died had been found close to sprigs of mistletoe, he deduces that they have been murdered. Publishing his suspicions in his newspaper, McPherson triggers a national hunt for the killers, a hunt in which he plays a major part.James McPherson’s pursuit of the killers takes him into mortal danger and leads him to physical injury, as he uncovers the machinations of a sinister cult – based almost on his own doorstep – a cult that threatens both his life, and that of the woman he loves, Eileen.The imposing Scottish landscape provides the perfect backdrop as McPherson and his allies take on Na Daoine Deadh Ghinn, encountering terrifying violence and murderous plots – and romance.While Eileen offers James valuable help in the fight against the cult, it seems that she may be involved with another man. In a fascinating sub-plot, James must win her love for his own.When the cult capture Eileen, who is to be offered as a sacrifice by the cult to its idols, will James be able to save her, or will the evil of Na Daoine Deadh Ghinn prevail? ‘Death by the Mistletoe’ is a swiftly moving tale that combines mystery, murder and romance. ‘A chilling seasonal page-turner.’ – Robert Foster, best-selling author of ‘The Lunar Code’.
