This is book number 5 in the Dandy Gilver series.
Winner of the 2017 Agatha Award for Best Historical Novel!
“Dandy Gilver is marvelously, hopelessly, hilariously wonderful. If you haven’t discovered Catriona McPherson yet, it’s time to start!” —Charles Todd, author of the Inspector Ian Rutledge Mystery series
On the rain-drenched, wind-battered Banffshire coast dilapidated mansions cling to cliff tops, and tiny fishing villages perch on ledges that would make a seagull think twice. It’s nowhere for Dandy Gilver, a child of gentle Northamptonshire, to spend Christmas.
But when odd things start to turn up in barrels of fish—with a strong whiff of murder most foul—that’s exactly where she finds herself. Enlisted to investigate, Dandy and her trusty cohort, Alec Osborne, are soon swept up in the fisherfolks’ wedding season as well as the mystery. Between age-old traditions and brand-new horrors, Dandy must think the unthinkable to solve her most baffling case yet in The Reek of Red Herrings.

“Agatha Christie lives! If you like this kind of book, and I do, you’ll love this book.” —John Lescroart
“Witty, humorous, and a thoroughly good read.” —M. C. Beaton
“I love Dandy Gilver’s wit and common sense. Curl up and prepare to enjoy!” —Deborah Crombie
“Not since Maisie Dobbs first surfaced has there been a pluckier or more winning heroine.” —Charles Finch, author of The Fleet Street Murders
