‘Highly Engaging’ – Sunday Herald
‘You could easily make a case that Andrew Greig has the greatest range of any living Scottish writer’ – Scotsman

The wager
To poach a salmon, grouse and a deer from three Royal Estates.

The challengers
Three men in a mid-life crisis who should know better.

The wild card
A flirtatious female journalist who won’t take no for an answer.

Striding over the Scottish Highlands with a poet’s eye on the wilderness and a firm grip on the adventure, Andrew Greig re-imagines John Buchan’s classic novel with a little less tweed, a little more sex, and just the right measure of whisky.

If you have a desire to luxuriate in the most beautiful use of the English language borne along by the love of one gifted poet for a recognized master of melancholy, then this is the book for you. It most certainly is the book for me
