1689, the Scottish crown is turmoil. Catholic King James is usurped by his protestant son-in-law, William. Rebellion flares and two young Highlanders join the fray.
When they unwittingly foil an assassination attempt on a prominent Jacobite Earl, James and Angus MacGregor, two young Highland clansmen, are thrust into a vipers nest of murder and political intrigue for which they are wholly unprepared. A mission to Edinburgh to warn leaders of the Jacobite cause goes badly wrong and they are forced to fight for their lives within the city walls. Beset by enemies the chase continues into the glens until this small spark ignites of flames of rebellion, beginning a conflict that will drench The Highlands in blood for generations.
Clansman is a traditional 17th century tale of heroic adventure with a cast of colourful characters and historical battles that aim to thrill the reader and inspire interest in British history.
