A Small Death in the Great Glen by A.D. Scott...
A child is missing and later found dead, and the only two witnesses are children themselves who are reluctant to reveal what they've seen. Set in a small village in the Scottish highlands, the members of the local newspaper get involved in the investigation.
Who killed Jamie Fraser and why? The plot threads begin to twist and tangle in this little gem set in the changing Scottish highlands of 1956.
I liked the characters in this novel and suspect they may return in a new novel. I hope so because I'd enjoy visiting the staff of the Highland Gazette again!
