Rosie McLeod, pub proprietor and a gifted herbalist of local renown, is thirty-nine and holding, but only just. The talons of her fortieth birthday are in her back and her bloody, bloody husband hasn t laid a lustful hand on her for months. Rosie sets out to discover if her husba...nd is having an affair, using deductive powers based solely on the careful preparation of plants and herbs. But as her well-laid plans entirely fall apart, the sighting of a large black cat sets her off in another direction to solve a murder before she becomes the next victim. Strange things have started to happen in the small town of Holy Cross. Black cats, sneaking suspicions and wine-powered ecstasy lay their grip on the clueless inhabitants and local news strongly suspects witches are behind it all. Meanwhile, poor Rosie McLeod is simply trying to deal with day to day catastrophes including lapsang souchong tea, carpet slippers and the impending doom of old age. With the innocent brewing of some herbs the frontiers between innocence and guilt, logic and magic, start to shift and events come thick and fast. Charles Gray s debut novel is a highly entertaining trip to Scottish village life and what really happens beneath its apparent dullness. The pillars of every community church, politics, and pub take a pounding and events of mystical origin claim their sacrifices. But who is the offender? And what is the charge? The Herbal Detective is an outstanding story that stays gripping until the very end.
