    Bob Burns is an old-fashioned kind of Scottish sleuth, more interested in catching villains than promotions. But when his enquiries into a murder are blocked by his bosses, he wonders if he should risk losing his career by carrying on his investigation. Encouraged by an attractive, maverick forensic scientist, and assisted by a keener-than-bright young constable, Bob does it his way. The trail leads them from Scotland to Mallorca, where intrigue and mayhem mingle with the crowds at a fishermen's fiesta.

    The Clyde Valley Stompers became, in the 1950s, Scotland's first ever super group. In 1961, at just 20 years of age, Peter 'Pete' Kerr inherited leadership of the Clydes after they moved to London. The band stormed the charts the following year and were launched into the glitzy world of mainstream popular music. Then, to the dismay of the Stompers' legions of fans, the curtain came down. But this is more than just a chronicle of their rise and fall.

    However, even after the trials, tribulations and triumphs of their initiation, Spain has not yet finished with them. Embarrassing subtleties of the language, brushes with the local police, the unfortunate outcome of a drinking session... surprises are aplenty to test the resolve, stamina and, perhaps more importantly, the sense of humour of this venturesome (some would say foolhardy) émigré family.

    Doogie O'Mara, a young Scottish veterinary student, applies for a gap-year job as a tour rep in Africa, where he also hopes to find time to study the wildlife. Instead, he finds himself on Mallorca, thrust in at the deep end of the madcap package tour business. Gannets are the only form of wildlife encountered. But these aren't the sort of birds he can treat. These are laden with fun-seeking holidaymakers!
