KIRKUS REVIEW

Scotch and American mix well in this adventure of Long Islander Chip and Highlander Neil as they quip their way through to the capture of a murderer and the revelation of a dishonest laird. In the small town of Ardour where Chip is visiting, he and Neil immediately join the chase after Red Dougal, hiding in the heath near a ruined abbey. It's soon evident that he's not the only target, for Laird Morton's son Murdoch is shifty-eyed- and after scuffles and a bit of international understanding- it's discovered that the bankrupt laird has been stealing for Murdoch's education and using Red Dougal's presence to hide his cache in the abbey. Highland fling.
