Following the success of his first novel, Machir Bay, author Alasdair Wham has launched the sequel, Bac Mor, which is largely set in Mull and Iona.

This is a fast-pace standalone thriller that takes the reader from Islay to Ireland, Mull and Iona before ending in a dramatic confrontation on the remote western shore of Jura.

The beauty of the Hebrides cannot hide the evil force intent on hunting down and killing an innocent man.

Catherine Robinson is dead, murdered on the orders of a ruthless drugs baron. Now his focus turns to her former lover, Peter Meldrum. Can Peter escape the trap set for McGrory when he can’t even trust his own friends?

Bac Mor is published by Greenan Publishing and is available from Watersons (Oban), Tackle and Books, Tobermory, The Highland Bookshop, Fort William, and the Ferry Store, Fionnphort.

  • Alasdair, a former deputy head teacher from Ayrshire, has previously written a series of popular books exploring Scotland’s disused railways, recording the history of the lines and incidents and personalities associated with the routes. His most recent railway books are published by the Oakwood Press, now part of Stenlake Publishing.
