Naming the Bones Synopsis

Some secrets are best left buried knee-deep in the mud of an ancient burial ground, a winter storm raging around him, and at least one person intent on his death: how did Murray Watson end up here? His quiet life in university libraries researching the lives of writers seems a world away, and yet it is because of the mysterious writer, Archie Lunan, dead for thirty years, that Murray now finds himself scrabbling in the dirt on the remote island of Lismore.

Naming the Bones Press Reviews

'Masterful...It is the most rounded of Welsh's books to date, fulfilling the huge promise of her earlier work, combining a whip-cracking plot with a literary touch that lifts her way above her genre colleagues...so much more than another literary mystery.'
The Times
