A SOLICITOR from Inverness has released her second Highland Noir novel.
Helen Forbes, who wrote In The Shadow of the Hill, has released her second book, Madness Lies.
Her latest tale follows DS Joe Galbraith on a new murder investigation and moves between Inverness, North Uist and London, before the finale in Black Rock Gorge.
Forbes said: ‘Writing the sequel to In the Shadow of the Hill was always going to be a challenge, especially given the wonderful reception my first book received.
‘However, in writing this novel I have worked to develop the characters and bring a more personal intimacy to them, so the reader is drawn more fully into all aspects of their lives.’
