Über diesen Titel


The contents of a trunk in his dead father's attic lead Ian Blackie on the trail of an IRA murder in a mission to stop an assassination.

From Kirkus Reviews:

The death of his ailing father, Andrew, brings financial advisor Ian Blackie to Invermuir from Edinburgh to stay for a few weeks with his mother. Exploring the attic of the family home one day, Ian finds a locked box containing an assortment of newspaper clippings, ordnance maps, old books and photographs. Much of the material relates to General Alexander Ballantine, his father's lifetime friend, who was recently killed in a bomb explosion aboard his boat. There's evidence in the clutter of papers of a budding group of Scottish nationalists and of Andrew Blackie's disbelief that the IRA was responsible for his friend's death. Ian begins to follow up the bits and pieces, meeting Ballantine's stepdaughter Isobel, a writer, and gradually coming to share his father's skepticism as he uncovers a small, militaristic band calling themselves Scotland Arise, with unclear ties to the whiskey- distilling industry and plans for an assault of some kind in the works. Then Isobel's country cottage is burned to the ground and Ian finds his own life at risk. His theories fall on deaf ears but are soon to be played out to a worldwide audience. Suspense is tempered by an avalanche of detail and a sometimes flat-footed narrative style, but, still, mostly intriguing-- especially to lovers of the Scottish scene, always disarmingly captured by Grindal (The Whisky Murders, etc.). -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP.
