Why did I write this book

IMGP7548I read a book by Ben Aaronovitch, The Rivers of London, this got me to thinking about Scotland’s Mythical history. I thought of two separate Scotland’s one populated by us. The other populated by all of the Lore and Myths of this country. I then thought about how these worlds could clash. So I set the book in the seventies. This allowed me to create a history of a contact in the Victorian era and the police force at that time. I also know Edinburgh quite well as I live here and work here.

The book opens with a man walking down Candlemaker Row in Edinburgh passing Greyfriars Bobby statue and pub. This man enters a Pawn Brokers/Antique shop and hands over a mysterious historical object thought lost to Scotland’s History.
