The tense, twisty murder mystery which will have you on the edge of your seat, from the author of Madam, Will You Talk? /font size>

‘Mary Stewart is magic’ New York Times

Following a heart-breaking divorce, Gianetta retreats to the Isle of Skye hoping to find tranquillity in the island’s savage beauty.

But shortly before her arrival a girl’s body is found on the craggy slopes of the looming Blue Mountain, and with the murderer still on the loose, there’s nothing to stop him from setting his sights on Gianetta next . . .

Praise for Mary Stewart:

‘There are few to equal Mary Stewart’ Daily Telegraph

‘One of the great British storytellers of the 20th century’ Independent

‘A natural successor to Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte’ Guardian

‘Total heaven. I’d rather read her than most other authors’ Harriet Evans

‘She set the benchmark for pace, suspense and romance – with a great dollop of escapism as the icing’ Elizabeth Buchan

What readers have said about Wildfire at Midnight:

‘Could not put the book down, from start to finish! Absolutely brilliant! A great writer. Thank you Mary Stewart’

I’ve read and re-read it countless times . . . wonderful setting for the plot, evocative and captivating writing, I love this book’

‘If you like a beautiful heroine with pluck, a handsome hero, danger and strong descriptive passages this is a book for you

A fabulous fast paced read . . . Stewart keeps you guessing to the very end with a doozy of a nail-biting finish set amongst the swirling mists, shifting bogs and the rocky crags of the Cuillin’
