Retired American schoolteacher ­Dorothy Martin and her husband, former chief constable Alan Nesbitt, leave their home in England for an adventure in Scotland. A friend has invited them to visit the excavation of a Stone Age city. Dorothy, in particular, is excited to see these ancient ­ruins—older than Stonehenge—but, as regular series readers know, where Dorothy goes, murder is soon to follow. And when the wealthy American man who's funding the dig dies, what first appears to be accidental circumstances soon looks like murder. Dorothy and Alan's friend, who's never hidden his dislike for the dead man, could be the prime suspects. Another solid mystery anchored by a pair of likable protagonists and a supporting cast of characters who would feel right at home in an Agatha Christie mystery. Series fans will be delighted.

Orkney, the group of islands just off the north Scottish coast, provides the setting for Dams's enticing 14th Dorothy Martin mystery (after 2013s Murder at the Castle). While on holiday, Dorothy and her husband, retired chief constable Alan Nesbitt, attend the annual meeting of the Friends of Ancient Orkney. When flashy American Henry J. Carter, the sole funder of an excavation on one of the more remote islands, announces that he expects to unearth and sell Viking gold, Dorothy and Alan Nesbitt realize he has rubbed the archeologists and locals the wrong way. Less than 24 hours later, Carter turns up dead at the dig. An otherwise engaged police force allows Alan and Dorothy to poke around for answers, but scant evidence leads to no clear perpetrator and some false trails. Amid ample historical lore and gorgeous descriptions of scenery, Dorothy uses her amateur investigating skills to arrive at a clever solution. Agent: Kimberley Cameron, Kimberley Cameron Agency.
