Gil Cunningham and an old acquaintance, Glasgow merchant Augie Morison, report the gruesome find of a severed head instead of an expected delivery of books. At the inquest, Morison is accused of murder and imprisoned. He appeals to Gil, who sets out to identify the dead man and establish the provenance of the treasure that lay beside him. The trail leads from the court of James IV at Stirling via a cooper's yard in Linlithgow, to another murder on the bare slopes of the Pentland Hills.

Another of those you cannot put down.
Set in medieval Scotland, with various attempts to convey the lingua of the time.
Best if one carries an old Scottish dictionary or use this:

No hints of the outcome; but lots of various additions to make one go on and on to find out more.
