Set in 1733, which places events 30 years after the Jacobite rebellion and at the time of the Highland Clearances. It is the sort of murder/mystery that Scottish writers have done so well, from the earliest Walter Scott to those who fall under the umbrella of today’s Tartan Noir. The new road of the title refers to the military road which General Wade tore into the Highlands to destroy the Clans in the 1700s, and it is along this road that events unfold.--DearScotland.com.

Author Bio for Munro, Neil
Neil Munro (1863—1930) was a Gaelic-speaking native of Argyllshire who spent most of his working life as a journalist and writer in Glasgow. He is universally known for his humorous Para Handy Tales which first appeared as newspaper sketches and which forever associate him with the West Highlands. His more important literary work includes a series of historical novels and some outstanding short stories—indeed, it has been suggested that Munro is one of Scotland's best short story writers.
