About the Author:

Catriona McPherson formerly an English lecturer at Leeds University, lives in Galloway, where she teaches for the Open University and writes. For more about Dandy Gilver and the author see dandygilver.co.uk.

From Booklist:

Dandy Gilver is visiting an old school friend in South Queensferry, Scotland. Her friend, Buttercup, now lives in one of the local castles and is in charge of festivities for the annual Ferry Fair. The walk of the Burry Man, who is covered in greenery and prickly burrs, is a part of the festival. According to the tradition, the burry man strolls through town and, everywhere he stops, is offered a nip of whisky. The town minister, various temperance advocates, and the school principal find the pagan origins and the strong drink offensive. When the Burry Man collapses and dies in full view of all in attendance, people begin to wonder if he has been poisoned. A police investigation finds little, but Dandy, ever curious, starts digging and turns up old feuds and other unsolved crimes. The book has a lively cast of characters and a strong Scottish atmosphere. Cozy readers will enjoy this trip to the Highlands. Sue O'Brien
