9780006706984: Hill of the Red Fox (Armada Lions)

"Unknown man found shot" said the newspaper headline. Alasdair recognised the man he had met on the train to Skye, the man who had slipped him a desperate last message "Hunt at the Hill of the Red Fox M15". Alasdair finds the Hill of the Red Fox on Skye, but the note still makes no sense. Nor at first do most of the strange and dangerous goings on on the island, many of which involve Alasdair's sinister uncle, Murdo Beaton. There is much more than the odd bit of poaching happening -- nuclear scientists and their secrets are disappearing. People are not always what they seem. Whom can Alasdair really trust? In finding out he uncovers a web of espionage -- and all its perils!

About the Author:

Allan Campbell McLean was born in 1922. He is the author of the children's books Master of Morgana, The Year of the Stranger, Storm over Skye and A Sound of Trumpets.

Review:

'A magnificent adventure story. It recalls Stevenson and Buchan ... the reader should be swept away by the swift narrative, the splendid vision and the magical atmosphere of Skye which pervades the story." -- Times Literary Supplement 'A riveting cold-war thriller for budding young Bonds.' -- Rachael Bloxham, Waterstone's Guide to Children's Books 'It is an espionage thriller strongly influenced by The Thirty-Nine Steps and with tinges of the early Ian Fleming ... The crofting environment is integral to the action, with sympathetic descriptions of communal activities such as peat gathering, mackerel fishing and sheep shearing.' -- Treasure Islands: A guide to Scottish fiction for young readers aged 10-14, Summer 2003
