Stoned to Death extras

This page contains extras that will (I hope!) add to your enjoyment of Stoned to Death, Jamie Brodie Mystery #8. I expect the book to be available by the end of January 2015. Until then, this page might whet your appetite for what’s to come…

First, Pete Ferguson’s family tree. It doesn’t seem to be possible to recreate it right on this page, so here’s the link to it:  Ferguson family tree

Next, a map of Scotland, showing the clans in their territories. Fergusons are in the southwest, Brodies are in the northeast (hard to see because half of the name overlaps the Moray Firth), and MacDonalds are in the islands just to the west of the mainland. Here’s a link to a much larger version: http://www.censusfinder.com/scottish-clans-map.htm

Here is a link to a map of Orkney. It’s not public domain, so I couldn’t reproduce it here:
