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.’
