KIRKUS REVIEW

P.M. Hubbard always writes well beyond the genre -- distinguishing it with his remarkable sense of physical locale, this time the Highlands with its exclusive but still primitive world of lairds and gangrels (tramps). The barely suggested romance (between a middle-aged man and a girl) and story (a box in a graveyard she's trying to secure for her wayward brother) are enough to keep you in your chair along with the ecologically imperative annual shooting of the hinds. The parallel stalk of man and beast is full of anticipated menace and Hubbard writes so well you can hear the rustle of a twig.
