The Crime Writers’ Association

Launch event for The Peat Dead by Allan Martin

Book launch with Allan Martin, introduced by Douglas Skelton

Islay. Remote and peaceful. Until a spade finds a human hand, a pointer to a crime. And under the peat, five corpses, unnamed, executed. Inspector Angus Blue builds his team. The evidence leads them to a wartime base. And the peat dead live begin to again, from documents, databases, recollections. But there’s a secret from way back, that needs to be protected. So bodies are stolen, witnesses die, truth is invented.

The Peat Dead. History doesn’t go away
