Scotch whisky is unquestionably among the most beloved distilled spirits in the world. Its colorful history, the complex process of its distillation, the variety of forms it takes, and its inextricable involvement with the culture, history, and character of its native country have all contributed to a recent worldwide explosion of interest in this unique liquor, comparable only to the sudden growth of interest in French wines that took place in the 1950s and 1960s. In Single Malt Scotch, author Roddy Martine and photographer Bill Milne have combined their talents to produce a rich and sumptuous volume in which the romance, mystery, warmth, and tradition surrounding Scotch whisky are brought gorgeously to life.

Abigail Logan never expected to inherit a whisky distillery in the Scottish Highlands. But in the first novel of an engaging new series blending fine spirits with chilling mystery, Abi finds that there are secrets lurking in the misty glens that some will go to any lengths to protect . . . even murder. When Abi inherits her uncle’s quaint and storied single malt distillery, she finds herself immersed in a competitive high-stakes business that elicits deep passions and prejudices. An award-winning photojournalist, Abi has no trouble capturing the perfect shot—but making the perfect shot is another matter. When she starts to receive disturbing, anonymous threats, it’s clear that someone wants her out of the picture. But Abi’s never been one to back down from a fight. Arriving on the scene with her whisky-loving best friend, Patrick, and an oversized wheaten terrier named Liam, Abi seems to put everyone in the bucolic village on edge—especially her dour but disturbingly attractive head distiller. Acts of sabotage and increasingly personal threats against Abi make it clear that she is not welcome. When one of Abi’s new employees is found floating facedown in a vat of whisky, Abi is determined to use her skills as an investigative journalist to identify the cold-blooded killer and dispense a dram of justice before he strikes again. But distilling truth from lies is tricky, especially when everyone seems to have something to hide. Melinda Mullet’s delightful Whisky Business mysteries can be read together or separately.
