About The Event

FREE Event Donald S Murray has been writing about his native Hebrides for years. Following the cirtically acclaimed and prize-winning As the Women Lay Dying, his second novel, set in 1952, draws inspiration from a little known event in the area - Operation Cauldron. In a Veil of Mist is a haunting exploration of the costs and fallout of warmongering and the implications of germ warfare. Donald will be in conversation with fellow author Chris Dolan.

This event will take place on Zoom and we will send you the link the day before the event.

A bit more about the book:

A poisoned breeze blows across the waves … Operation Cauldron, 1952: Top-secret germ warfare experiments on monkeys and guinea pigs are taking place aboard a vessel moored off the Isle of Lewis. Local villagers Jessie and Duncan encounter strange sights on the deserted beach nearby and suspect the worst. And one government scientist wrestles with his own inner anguish over the testing, even if he believes extreme deterrent weapons are needed. When a noxious cloud of plague bacteria is released into the path of a passing trawler, disaster threatens. Will a deadly pandemic be inevitable?
