A ceremonial short sword, a dirk steeped in history and much valued by a Scots army battalion, is taken on impulse by an alcoholic while awaiting his dismissal from service for prior thefts. He heads south from Edinburgh thinking to start anew, relapses, and is once more caught stealing. Retribution swiftly follows. He is badly beaten and returns to Scotland a cripple and unable to retrieve his prize.
The Find is made purely by chance. Alan Marriott, a teenager recently relocated to Milton New Town with his family from an impoverished area of London, walks an unprecedented route across open fields to visit his only friend. A ray of sunlight reveals the hiding place of the dirk. Alan and his friend Zak set about the task of recovering this as yet unknown object, an action that produces dire consequences for both boys and their families.
This no-holds barred mystery novel asks, “Is there such a thing as a jinx?” Readers can draw their own conclusions.
