Description
When a local woman discovers a severed leg in the boot of one of the local hockey players' uniforms, it's a big scoop for the Highland Gazette. But, in this mystery set in 1958 Scotland, reporter Joanne Ross wants a front-page story of her own and hopes to find it in Mae Bell, an American jazz singer whose husband disappeared in an aircraft accident five years before and is searching the Highlands for her husband's colleagues. Matters take a sinister turn when Nurse Urquhart, who discovered the limb, suffers a brutal attack following a series of letters that warn her to keep her nose out of everyone else's business.

"When the wife of the coach of a local shinty (the precursor of ice hockey) team finds a severed leg in the boot of one of the team uniforms she is cleaning, it's big news. When that same woman is disfigured in an acid attack, the incident crosses from grotesque prank to violent assault. The heroine of this series, Joanne Ross, is a woman who escaped an abusive husband, found a job as a typist at the paper, and now works as a full-fledged reporter for the Highland Gazette. Besides covering the ghastly news of the misplaced leg and the acid attack, Ross does some enterprising reporting on a glamorous American jazz singer searching for information on her husband, whose aircraft went down in the North Sea during WWII.... An atmospheric mystery, with a wonderful, plucky reporter-heroine."Booklist
