    No one detests the Brotherhood more than Mycroft Holmes, the older brother of the famous private detective, does. He recently learns the Brotherhood, which has been absent from England for quite a while, has set in motion a scheme to gain entrance on English soil. At a time that Mycroft needs to remain at full alert, he is beset by conflicting problems that pull him into different directions. He knows in his gut that the Brotherhood is responsible for his troubles an also he must stop them if he can.

    Quinn Fawcett turns his hero into a mysterious person with complex depths and an incisive intelligence. Mycroft is James Bond turned M, a spymaster operating in the deepest shadows. THE SCOTTISH PLOY includes an excellent mystery filled with numerous twists and red herrings that continually fool readers who never know what will happen next. The novel provides insight into Mycroft's psyche that in turns allows the audience to understand his patriotic fervor. This is a great entry in fantastic series.
