A rugby-playing half-Maori named Leo Nagotoa stands in the sleet by Romanno Bridge in the Scottish Borders, trying to thumb a lift when his Destiny slithers up alongside him.
Some of the cast of The Return of John Macnab are back, but the times and the mood have changed. Romanno Bridge is a wintry thriller, an entertainment, a quest and an exploration of contemporary themes of fakes, frauds, copies, and a struggle to find the Real Thing, wherever and whatever it might be.
Andrew Greig is a poet and novelist. He has published six volumes of poetry (Bloodaxe) and four novels, the most recent of which, That Summer, brought him to a wide readership. He was born in Bannockburn in Scotland and educated at the University of Edinburgh. He lives in Orkney and Sheffield (with his wife the writer Leslie Glaister). Among other things, he is known as the unofficial poet laureate of the mountaineering community and a love of the land characterises much of his work.
