When the body of a man in eighteenth-century Highland dress is discovered on the site of the Battle of Culloden, journalist Rebecca Connolly takes up the story for the Chronicle. Meanwhile, a film being made about the '45 Rebellion has enraged the ultra-Nationalist right-wing group Spirit of the Gael. They see themselves as modern-day Jacobites and have been linked to death threats and fake anthrax deliveries to Downing Street and Holyrood - and they are intent on disrupting filming. When a second body - this time in the Redcoat uniform of the government army - is found in Inverness, Rebecca finds herself drawn ever deeper into the mystery. Are the murders connected to the nationalist group, a local gang war or something else entirely?
