ANCIENT STONES, VIKING GOLD — AND A VERY MODERN MURDER
Dorothy Martin never wanted to visit the Orkney Islands. But her husband Alan is dying to go. And once they arrive it’s love at first sight for Dorothy. Stone circles, rugged cliffs and rolling hills — the Orkneys have it all.
No wonder blustering outlander Henry Carter has his eye on the place. He is bankrolling a dig in the area, out of more than just casual curiosity.
There’s treasure buried under the Orkneys. And he will be the one to claim it all.
Except that someone on the island has other ideas . . .
Carter turns up dead, crushed by a stone wall on his own dig site.
Who hated him enough to commit the ultimate crime?
It’s up to amateur sleuth Dorothy to find out.
Perfect for fans of Stella Cameron, Faith Martin, Agatha Christie, Frances Evesham, Betty Rowlands, or M.C. Beaton.
READERS LOVE THE DOROTHY MARTIN MYSTERIES
“Hugely entertaining, gentle mystery with a likeable protagonist.” Intheamazone
“Dorothy is a dear.” New York Times Book Review
“If you’re a classic mystery lover, you're sure to enjoy the books of Jeanne M. Dams. Her characters, settings and stories have a depth not often seen in this sub-genre.” Mystery News
“A cozy as comforting as a hot cup of tea and as deliciously spicy as one of Dorothy's mince pies.” Publishers Weekly
Dorothy Martin, sixtyish widow from Indiana and retired schoolteacher, moves to England shortly after her husband dies. A move they had planned to make together. Like the author, she has a taste for fabulous hats.

discovered on the site of a very extensive dig on one of many small islands.
It proves to be one of the most challenging and uncomfortable experiences yet before they begin to make any headway, a real holiday from hell in fact, but a gripping read for us loyal fans of this intrepid pair.
A brilliant book which took me three late night's to complete, with the last one ending as dawn broke as I could not put it down.
