Overview
One of Kirkus Reviews' Best Mysteries and Thrillers of 2015

Set against the grandeur of the Northern Scottish Highlands in the 1950s, here is the sixth evocative, fast-paced, suspenseful mystery in A.D. Scott's highly acclaimed series featuring beloved heroine Joanne Ross.

Praised for their "well-drawn characters" (Publishers Weekly), "ingenious" plotting (Booklist, starred review), and "a terrific sense of place" (Rhys Bowen, New York Times bestselling author of Hush Now, Don't You Cry), A. D. Scott's mysteries never fail to enthrall and entertain. Now, in Scott's latest, Joanne Ross returns for a spellbinding case involving a woman accused of witchcraft in small-town Scotland.

When Alice Ramsay, artist and alleged witch, is found dead in her home in a remote Scottish glen, the verdict is suicide.

But Joanne Ross of the Highland Gazette refuses to believe it. As she investigates Alice's past, Joanne uncovers layer upon layer of intrigue. With the appearance of officials from a secretive government agency and an ambitious art critic from a national newspaper, Joanne is increasingly convinced that something--and someone--from Alice's past was involved in her death.

As in her previous mysteries North Sea Requiem, Beneath the Abbey Wall, and A Double Death on the Black Isle, among others, A. D. Scott brings to life compelling characters and vividly portrays the charms and intrigues of a small town in 1950s Scotland. With surprising twists and a shocking d nouement that poses moral questions as relevant now as six decades ago, A Kind of Grief is another unforgettable entry in an atmospheric series that will draw you in and linger in your mind like mist over the Scottish glens.
