This book features the lovable Scottish grocer Dickson McCunn together with the now all-grown-up Gorbals Die-Hards--or some of 'em anyway. A newspaper magnate is kidnapped...by young divinity students, for a joke. Yes, you heard that right. The disappearence causes quite a splash in international circles, however, and when Die-Hards Dougal and Jaikie come across the magnate at a lonely farmhouse and agree to carry a message for him, Stuff Happens. Not the usual kind of thing one might expect from a book about conspiracies, revolutions, and the fast world of journalism, but enough to keep the pages turning.
