Fiction • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Narrator Ruth Urquhart takes on this long-winded tale of a mysterious disappearance and the hunt for a missing lad on a sparsely populated Scottish island. Leigh Welles, depressed and disappointed with life, believes in the mysterious sluagh--legendary, bloodthirsty, soul-stealing Celtic creatures who haunt the island in October. When a local boy goes missing, Welles searches for him with the help of sad- toned Iain MacTavis, an RAF veteran and widower. Urquhart's fluid performance, sprinkled with Gaelic and hard-edged Scottish accents, seems relentless and mind numbing. It is replete with descriptions of magic, the wild highlands, and empty rocky shorelines. Haunting scenes of the missing, past and present, overshadow the mystery.
