This book is a depressing account of a terrible crime and the stories of the people behind it. The characters are well described, and even though there is a sense of foreboding throughout the book, there was still some grim humour to counterbalance all the misery. The harsh life of the villagers in the Scottish Highlands in the 1860s is vividly portrayed. The impressive writing style made us question whether the whole story was real, although we felt a different voice was needed for Roddy’s written account of events. The conflict between sanity & insanity appears throughout the story. This book was enjoyed more than expected, but is not a book for the faint-hearted. 8.5/10
