Lie of the Land
by Michael F. Russell
‘Not very long ago, a book such as Lie of the Land would have been categorised as science-fiction, or futurism, or dystopia…when a novel is as well-written as this, it stands as literature and may only be judged on literary merits. Michael F. Russell has delivered an intriguing, thought-provoking and immensely readable book’ – Roger Hutchinson, author of Calum’s Road, West Highland Free Press
For investigative journalist Carl Shewan, the Scottish coastal village of Inverlair is a picturesque cage. Imprisoned in this remote refuge by a technological catastrophe for which he feels partly responsible, Carl struggles to adapt to impending fatherhood and to a harsh new existence in an ancient landscape, until a childless gamekeeper offers him a chance of redemption.
