"Dandy Gilver is marvelously, hopelessly, hilariously wonderful. If you haven't discovered Catriona McPherson yet, it's time to start!" --Charles Todd, author of the Inspector Ian Rutledge Mystery series

On the rain-drenched, wind-battered Banffshire coast dilapidated mansions cling to cliff tops, and tiny fishing villages perch on ledges that would make a seagull think twice. It's nowhere for Dandy Gilver, a child of gentle Northamptonshire, to spend Christmas.

But when odd things start to turn up in barrels of fish--with a strong whiff of murder most foul--that's exactly where she finds herself. Enlisted to investigate, Dandy and her trusty cohort, Alec Osborne, are soon swept up in the fisherfolks' wedding season as well as the mystery. Between age-old traditions and brand-new horrors, Dandy must think the unthinkable to solve her most baffling case yet in The Reek of Red Herrings .
