The Shadow of the Black Earl

Haunted by his last case and bereaved by a sudden loss, Leo Moran is invited to spend the summer at Biggnarbriggs Hall, the stately residence of his friend Fordyce Greatorix. He is overjoyed when romance blossoms unexpectedly, but he finds himself plagued by visions after a local girl goes missing, an incident which has chilling echoes of a similar disappearance thirty years previously. As he investigates a host of curious and dubious characters, Leo finds that the very bedrock which surrounds Biggnarbriggs Hall is poisoned by an ancient malevolence that will have its terrible reckoning.

Charles E McGarry lives in Glasgow where he was born and bred, although he spent several years living in London and Edinburgh. He has played in bands, is widely travelled and graduated from Glasgow University in 1994 with an honours degree in History and Politics. He currently works as a newspaper page designer and sub-editor, having formerly been a business analyst for British Telecom. He is the co-author of The Road to Lisbon (2012, Birlinn), and in 2017 The Ghost of Helen Addison, the first in the Leo Moran series of crime fiction, was published by Polygon and described by The Bottle Imp as “pick of the year for sheer entertainment value and spectacular leftfieldness” . The second in the series, The Shadow of the Black Earl, is published in September 2018.
