If you are Scots or Orcadian beware

I do not review books, however I must comment on this one.

The narrator's pronunciation in reference to Orkney place names is abysmal as is the Scots accents, which bear no relevance to spoken scots. Obviously no research of these matters have been done prior to recording.
