From the master of Scottish historical fiction comes a light-hearted tale of intrigue, adventure and sunken treasure set amongst the windswept isles of the Inner Hebrides.
An old story from the loose lips of a whiskey-sodden seaman sets Glaswegian giant Roddy Roy MacGregor off in search of wealth beyond his wildest dreams.
On the tiny Hebridean Isle of Inishewen, he soon finds himself embroiled in a devious and highly illegal plot to raise the sunken treasure of a legendary Spanish galleon before the authorities, or the locals, can lay claim to it.
Aided by members of the Clan MacAimish - the lovely daughter of the chief among them - Roddy seeks to scupper the efforts of the English salvage expedition and take the treasure for himself, and for the good of Scotland.
