Event description

Description

Blackwell's are very pleased to be hosting Douglas Watt for the launch of 'Unnatural Death of a Jacobite'. Join us in the bookshop for a conversation about the latest instalment of the John Mackenzie series.

About the Book

MacKenzie and Scougall are back.

It’s 1689 and the body of a young lawyer has been discovered near Craigleith Quarry, Edinburgh. Meanwhile, in the Highlands, an army is trying to crush the government in the hope of restoring James Stewart to the throne. Was the discovered body anything to do with the rise of the Jacobites? Or was it simply the result of an office rivalry? Investigative lawyer John MacKenzie and his assistant Scougall search for the truth in the fourth instalment of Douglas Watt’s John MacKenzie series.

About the Author

DOUGLAS WATT was born in Edinburgh and brought up there and in Aberdeen. He was educated at Edinburgh University where he gained an MA and PhD in Scottish History. Douglas is the author of a series of historical crime novels set in the late 17th century Scotland featuring investigative advocate John MacKenzie and his side-kick Davie Scougall. He is also the author of The Price of Scotland, a prize-winning history of Scotland’s Darien Disaster. He lives in Midlothian with his wife Julie.
