Dr Mungo Lyon is recruited by the Crown to investigate a shipwreck and murder in the Scotland of 1829. His adventures lead him on a pursuit across the Scottish countryside, kidnap and treason, an unwanted trip to the West Indies, insurrection and falling in love.
A ship adrift, all hands dead. A lighthouse keeper murdered in the night. The Crown needs man to find the truth. Doctor Mungo Lyon, his reputation tarnished by the Burke & Hare scandal, and forbidden to practise as a surgeon, is the wrong man. That's exactly why the Crown chose him.
