What happens when sentiment turns sinister…
Beth Crichton, a PR Officer, has been appointed to work with Ross Foundation. Though excited about the prospect of restoring a Highland croft, which used to be in the Ross Family before they were driven from the Clearances, she is far from surprised as sinister events start to unfold.

The restoration works are being funded by a wealthy overseas descendant who is intent on rebuilding his ancestors’ home. Beth and other experts employed to authenticate and replicate many of the artefacts, find themselves reaching out to Detective Inspector Leslie Gunn, a former historical expert. In fact, Mrs Morwenna Ross insists upon DI Gunn being consulted.
As the race to authenticate and regenerate the ancestral home unfolds, it soon becomes apparent that a rather valuable piece is missing … The Ross Tapestry. Caught up in their tasks, the experts are shocked to hear of a death nearby. When DCI Jack Rutherford begins his enquiries, the seriousness of the crime unnerves the researchers’ household. Especially as the deceased turns out to be a bitter enemy, suspicions are aroused. Soon, the household finds itself embedded in a mesh of suspicion and fear.
When one of the researchers is also found dead, DI Leslie Gunn finds herself shifting from historical expert, to calling on her training in dealing with violent crime.
