“If an assignment is known to be extremely hazardous, agents are given the opportunity to refuse.
He was giving me that opportunity.”
Act It Out’s historic re-enactments from the life of Mary Queen of Scots are not all that they seem. Sites closely associated with that tragic queen are a cover for the distribution of drugs in central Scotland. Revenue & Customs undercover agent DJ Smith
and her sniffer cat Gorgonzola
join one of the tours, but she begins to suspect that some of her companions – an eerily self-convinced reincarnation of Mary Queen of Scots, a fanatical bagpipe player, a couple of sex-obsessed newlyweds – are bad actors and that in reality, they are couriers in the pay of the drug organisation. When the organisation suspects that it has been infiltrated, suspense builds as the re-enactments in historic Holyrood Palace, the fortified tower on Loch Leven island, and the ruined St Andrews Castle provide an excellent opportunity for murder...
The reader as a time traveller is present at dramatic events in the life of Mary Queen of Scots, at the same time enjoying the suspense of a modern murder mystery in which a cat detective plays a vital part. Acting Suspiciously is a cosy crime novel featuring the sixth undercover mission for DJ Smith and Gorgonzola, a feisty cat with attitude.
