Lieb Canavan is a Procurator Fiscal (Coroner) in Scotland. He is married to Rose, who is away visiting her sister Heather and her new baby. Preparing for their first separation, Lieb gets a call to work - another body has been found in a blue barrel. He meets up with Senior Inspector Marcus Campbell and the case fills in the empty time Rose is away.For Marcus the case turns, when he is partnered with Senior Inspector Grace Scott and his many protestations of being a career bachelor crash in around him. With Marcus & Grace helping close the Bodies in the Barrels case, Lieb lands another; one that is far too close to home and one that will earn him the nickname ‘The Iceman’.
Viktoria King comes from another Perth, this one is Australia: but with a family connection to Scotland.
Well bitten by the travel bug I've been travelling since 1988 and an opportunity to live & work in Singapore, then the UK and Canada gave me every chance to travel every weekend: sometimes 10 mile for a few hours; sometimes thousands of miles for weeks at a time. Six years living in England provided me time to explore & connect to my Scottish homeland; so it felt right to base my fictional characters there.
