Red Sky in the Morning

For anyone waiting for the sequel to Bob Atkinson’s 2012 bestseller ‘The Last Sunset‘, your wait is nearly over. ‘Red Sky in the Morning’ concludes the adventures of Andy Macmillan and the other cast of soldiers and vacationers stranded in the Scottish Highlanders at the height of the 1745 rebellion.

The novel is overflowing with romance, danger, politicking, tragedy and atonement. And hovering just out of sight is the army of the Duke of Cumberland, or ‘Butcher Cumberland’ as the history books know him. The Duke’s redcoat army suffered a reverse in the first book, but no more than that. There will be a reckoning between the redcoats and the rebels, and Bob Atkinson does not shortchange his readers as he delivers a stunning climax.

The paperback is already available from Amazon. The Kindle edition will be available to pre-order shortly. Stay tuned (or press the subscribe button at the top-right of the website) for further news.
