New Thriller Set in Wartime Orkney

‘Bloody Orkney’ is a new thriller by writer Ken Lussey.

This fast paced tale of secrets and lies is set during World War Two.

It’s November 1942. Bob Sutherland, Monique Dubois and the Military Intelligence 11 team fly in to review security in Orkney, home to one of the most important and most heavily defended naval anchorages in the world.

But an unidentified body has been found. It becomes clear that powerful men have things they’d rather keep hidden and MI 11’s arrival threatens the status quo. Then Bob stumbles over a ghost from his past and things get far too personal.

He and Monique are called away to resolve a crisis at a secret experimental base at Gruinard Bay in Wester Ross. When they return to Orkney, they find that the rules have been rewritten and they are in very real danger.

Published by Arachnid Press, this is the third in Ken’s series of thrillers set in Scotland during World War Two. Its two predecessors, ‘Eyes Turned Skywards’ and ‘The Danger of Life’ were published in 2018 and 2019 by Fledgling Press. He has also written ‘The House With 46 Chimneys’, an adventure story for younger readers set in central Scotland against the background of the early days of the coronavirus lockdown. This was published in late 2020 by Arachnid Press.
