Hello Readers,

We are pleased to announce that our associate editor, Keith Moray’s latest crime novel, set right here on West Uist has now been published by Robert Hale.

This is the fifth in the series and in it Inspector Torquil McKinnon  and his team are up against a serial killer, which Calum and Cora have christened…..

But that is is telling you too much. Here is what it says on the book cover:

The lack of light pollution made West Uist an idea place for astronomical observation.
            The Heavens Above show, a regular Scottish TV review of the latest news about astronomy, is being broadcast from the island and there has been an influx of amateur astronomers. At the same time, the West Uist Astrological Society has staged a series of lectures by a celebrity astrologer.
            Tension between the two groups is clear from the start and when a body is found floating in Kyleshiffin harbour it is unclear whether there has been a tragic accident or a cold-blooded murder. A chalked astrological sign on the harbor wall   gathers significance when a second body and another sign is discovered. This time there is no doubt – it was murder most foul.
            And the signs are that there will be more deaths, unless Inspector Torquil McKinnon and his team can solve the case and find the Zodiac Killer.
If you fancy a copy, then pop to the left of the article and you’ll see a link to Amazon, where you can get a good deal. Alternatively, get it straight from the publisher where you can also get a good deal.

  1. Hi Calum,
    Thoroughly enjoying Death in Transit, just as I have the previous books in the series. When you speak to Keith next, you might want to remind him that the buoys off West Uist will be the responsibility of the Northern Lighthouse Board, who are based near me in Oban. Trinity House don’t bother themselves with our dangerous waters!
    I am looking forward to the next book, but I’m sorry it’s the last of the series!

    All the best to all in West Uist.


    1. Hi Andrew,
      So sorry for the delay in replying, all due to the pandemic. I’m glad you are enjoying Death in Transit. I passed on your message to Keith. He’s a bit busy at present, as he’s come out of retirement and joined Doctor’s Dad’s Army to support the NHS. Hopefully, things will start to relax a bit for us all if the lockdown measures are eased.

      Deadly Still, the sixth came out early this year, but there is a seventh in the pipeline called Deep and Deadly. There are three historical ones to come out first, though (The Pardoner’s Crime is out and Fool’s Folly follows at the end of the month.)

      I love it round Oban!

      Best wishes and keep safe and well,

      Calum and Keith
