Der Police Sergeant und passionierte Vogelbeobachter William South hat zwei gute Gründe, wieso er nicht in einem Mordfall ermitteln will, der seinen Heimatort erschüttert. Die Zugvögel machen gerade Zwischenhalt an der Küste von Kent. Und er ist selbst ein Mörder. Souths Verbrechen liegt lange zurück und ist nie aufgedeckt worden, er war damals noch ein Kind und lebte in Nordirland. Doch nun scheint ihn die Vergangenheit einzuholen. Als ein Freund von South brutal ermordet aufgefunden wird, ist allzu schnell der Täter ausgemacht: Danny Fraser, ein Landstreicher, der sich anscheinend selbst gerichtet hat. South kennt ihn aus seiner Kindheit und glaubt nicht, dass er der Mörder war. Doch was hat Fraser überhaupt nach Kent verschlagen? An der Seite seiner neuen Vorgesetzten Alexandra Cupidi, einer gerade aus London zugezogenen alleinerziehenden Mutter, sucht South nach den wahren Hintergründen des Mordes. Stets erfüllt von der Angst, dass sein lange gehütetes Geheimnis gelüftet wird.

In the very north of Britain, far from the bustling cities and picturesque countryside to the south, lies Western Europe's greatest wilderness: the Scottish Highlands. This is a land shaped by the flow of ancient ice, where snow-capped mountains tower over ink-black lochs, Golden Eagles soar over heather-clad moors, and Red Deer stags engage in mortal combat for the right to win a mate. Along the coast, sea cliffs and offshore islands teem with millions of seabirds, while the seas themselves are home to Basking Sharks, Orcas and Bottlenose Dolphins. The Highlands may at first sight seem bleak and desolate, but they are also filled with secret wonders, from the ancient Caledonian pine forests to the vast Flow Country, and from the sheer granite cliffs of Handa to the mysterious depths of Loch Ness. In this lavish companion to the BBC TV series Stephen Moss's thoughtful, authoritative text is accompanied by spectacular photography from Laurie Campbell. Highlands ? Scotland's Wild Heart follows a year in the lives of a stellar cast of wild animals as they live, feed, breed and die in this beautiful, yet unforgiving landscape ? a land where only the toughest survive.
