While Kyle seeks to thwart the raiders‚ someone begins murdering English soldiers from a nearby garrison one at a time and mutilating their corpses.
Ayrshire Murders is an historical mystery set in an age of rudimentary forensics and political intrigues‚ in a land where a kinsman may act as blood avenger against those who perpetrate violence against a family member.
