What secrets do the peatlands hide?
An octogenarian distiller is wary of the goings-on in his distillery. The only person he can turn to is innkeeper Aileen Mackinnon.
Amateur sleuth Aileen Mackinnon has a knack for numbers and accounting. After all, she was a revered forensic accountant once. Wanting to wear her sleuthing hat once again, she takes on this simple case, never expecting a foray into familial fights, flying bullets and death.
Detective Inspector Callan Cameron is ordered to stay away from the peatlands. That means he’ll never find his best friend’s body. But something strange is brewing in Loch Fuar. As summer blazes through town, unease and distrust run rampant.
Has the summer heat awoken a murderer or were they awaiting the return of a Mackinnon?

Germany, 1945. In the waning days of World War II, the Nazis have been all but defeated. Uwe Fuchs, never a fighter, feels fortunate to have avoided the front lines as he cared for his widowed mother.
But Uwe’s fortune changes when Hans Sauer, the village bully, recruits him to join a guerilla resistance unit preparing for the arrival of Allied soldiers. At first, Uwe is wary. The war is lost, and rumor has it that Hans is a deserter. But Hans entices him with talk of power, brutality, and their village’s ancestral lore: werewolves.
With some reluctance, Uwe joins up with the pack and soon witnesses their startling transformation. But when the men’s violent rampage against enemy soldiers takes a devastatingly personal turn, Uwe must grapple not only with his role in their evil acts but with his own humanity. Can he reclaim what this group of predatory men has stolen from him?
Or has he been a monster all along?
