A young meteorologist checking a mountain top weather station discovers the body of a man entombed in ice.
The dead man is investigative reporter, George Younger, missing for three months after vanishing during what he claimed was a hill-walking holiday. Cameron Brodie, a veteran Glasgow detective, volunteers to be flown north to investigate Younger’s death, but he has more than a murder enquiry on his agenda. He knows the time has come to face his estranged daughter who has made her home in the remote Highland village.
Arriving during an ice storm, Brodie and pathologist Dr. Sita Roy, find themselves the sole guests at the International Hotel, where Younger’s body has been refrigerated. But evidence uncovered during his autopsy places the lives of both Brodie and Roy in extreme jeopardy.
Set in the year 2051, when warnings of a climate catastrophe have been ignored, A Winter Grave is May at his page-turning passionate and provocative best.
