In 1952, the bicentenary of the Appin Murder, Seamus Carney met Lt. Gen. Sir William MacArthur whilst on holiday in Donegal.

The author presents a superb study of the events and the courtroom battle for the life of James of the Glen, presenting a case for and against him and the other suspect, swashbuckling soldier, Allan Breck Stewart. A full account of an episode in Scottish history that has baffled historians, writers and lawmen. S8.
