Roderick Grant – The Stalking Of Adrian Lawford (NEL, July 1974)
When a woman marries she is expected to divide her love and loyalty between her husband and her children. But supposing her husband dies and she has an only son — that son will claim all her love.
But Adrian Lawford determined otherwise. He was in love with such a widow, and a wealthy one too. However, he had not reckoned with the supreme jealousy a son can feel…
The quiet holiday he had proposed in the beautiful Scottish highlands soon turns into a nightmare game of hide-and-seek, played in the long heather and prickly gorse. And a game that is deadly, nevertheless.
