They came out in the kitchen, where a girl of about fifteen stood squinting at the pottage in a vast iron pot, furrowing the surface with a wooden spoon. The boards were lined with rows of bannocks, yellow slabs of bacon fat and collops of salt beef. An offal pie stood centrepiece, spilling out its gizzards in a scattering of mace. The paunch and udder filling had acquired a greenish tinge.

A ship is wrecked in St. Andrews bay and the sole survivor dies soon after. There is a windmill on the wreck that various townspeople, millers and bakers included, want to lay claim to. Soon one miller dies by what appears to be accidental drowning and then another is murdered. Hew Cullen is charged by the coroner to help solve the mystery.

I read a previous novel in the Hew Cullen series, "Hew and Cry" and enjoyed it very much giving it a five star review. I looked forward to reading this book but was sadly disappointed. The author uses a completely different style of writing in this book which is very heavy and ponderous. It is one thing to have dialogue using an old style of speech and Scottish vernacular but the author employed that in the text also. In the very first paragraph of chapter one the text read, "They would have gaped like louns to catch him at the chase, darting through the tennis courts in primrose-stirruped slops". After a few pages of that I quickly grew tired of trying to figure out what was meant. I was going to stop reading but instead skimmed through to the end. The rest of the story line left me unimpressed.

I found the story well written and entertaining. If you liked the first two Hew Cullen books, you'll like this one too. I look forward to the next in the series.
