    Ailsa Rae is learning how to live. She's only a few months past the heart transplant that - just in time - saved her life. Life should be a joyful adventure. But....

    When a body is discovered in the remote depths of the Highlands, DCI Karen Pirie finds herself in the right place at the right time.
