Glamorous journalist Laura Lake hunts down the scoop of the year in the Scottish Highlands

Laura Lake, editor of glamorous glossy magazine Society, is in trouble. Advertising revenues are down, and her job will be in jeopardy if she can't pick them up. According to those in the know, Scotland is having a moment. Haggis tempura is on Michelin-starred menus, smart spas are offering porridge facials, and a chain of eco-hotels on the sites of Highland Clearances are pulling in star punters. With a view to getting a slice of this ultra-high-end market, Laura's been sent to a baronial estate in Wester Ross to write a think-piece about celebrity bagpipes. It's supposed to be gorgeous, glitzy, and glamorous. But intrigue follows Laura like night follows day. And at Glenravish Castle—a shooting lodge fit for a billionaire—Laura finds herself hunting for a scoop that won't just save her job, it could save her life.
