A woman is found murdered in a ritualistic way, and the police have very information to go on. The victim, a middle aged woman who left her husband to start a mysterious new life is found in an alley in Glasgow with multiple stab wounds. Shortly after the murder, Andromeda (Annie to her friends) spies a man at a Glasgow train station whose aura is clearly evil. After leaving an anonymous tip for the police, they trace the tip back to her, and with no other information to go on, begin to investigate what she saw. It soon becomes apparent that Annie is the key to unraveling the mystery and stopping a man bent on evil.
I'm a sucker for paranormal mysteries, and I'm a sucker for Scottish mysteries, so I had pretty high expectations just from reading the blurb. And it was (for the most part) an excellent mystery, with a taut plot, great characters and lots of magic.
