Romanno Bridge, Paperback

Romanno Bridge Paperback



A motorcyclist with a stolen ring walks into Rothiemurchus Forest until he finds a quiet place to die.

A woman with an eventful past has signed the Official Secrets Act and gone to Dumfries to forget a man and keep out of trouble.

In comfortable Crieff, a retired historian publishes an obscure article on the survival of the Stone of Destiny then has his throat cut.

A man with a long blade in a tan holster under his suit, a fondness for bird-watching, and memories of his short-lived Punk band Anger Management, has taken a commission to retrieve an object so valuable and mythic it might not exist.

A rugby-playing half-Maori named Leo Nagotoa stands in the sleet by Romanno Bridge in the Scottish Borders, trying to thumb a lift when his Destiny slithers up alongside him.

The hunt for the crowning stone of the Dalriadic kings, the Stone of Scone - is worth enough to make life cheap for some and dear to others - has begun. Some of the cast of The Return of John Macnab are back, but the times and the mood have changed. Romanno Bridge is a wintry thriller, an entertainment, a quest and an exploration of contemporary themes of fakes, frauds, copies, and a struggle to find the Real Thing, wherever and whatever it might be.
