Lexie Conyngham

Author Lexie Conynghamabout this book: Leith Hall is in Aberdeenshire and is owned by the National Trust for Scotland. A friend of mine is one of the volunteer guides there, and came across this true story - a midwinter duel in 1763 in Aberdeen, where John Leith was killed by a good friend - which the family always thought was more than a bit suspect. Yes, Leith died, and yes, the friend killed him, but what was the real reason? I was intrigued and did some more background research, finding some excellent historical characters to include, like Andrew Hay of Rannes who was over seven feet tall, a real gentle giant! It was begging to be turned into a novel and here we are - I've chosen my own way to solve the mystery, including elements of the Seven Years War and a visit to Amsterdam, hints at Jacobites, murders, secrets and lies, and I really enjoyed my journey - I hope you enjoy it too!
