About the Book

Young and dissolute, Francis Birkenshaw carouses around Edinburgh, caring nothing for the Jacobite Rebellion. An encounter with the beautiful Margaret Murray, wife of Bonnie Prince Charlie's secretary John Murray of Broughton, and his lust for riches and adventure draw him inexorably into a dangerous involvement, duplicity and betrayal.

Best known for his Richard Hannay spy thrillers, John Buchan reveals a dark and compelling side in this portrayal of Bonnie Prince Charlie's ill-fated campaign.

With an introduction by James Robertson.

This edition is authorised by the John Buchan Society.
