Enthralling Cultural Immersion

It’s not just the story and passion for journalism that is captivating by Isla Traquair. She creates a total cultural immersion which paints a glimpse into Scotland in the 1960s, provoking thoughts of culture, sexuality, ideals and technology that help deduce true crime and murder. She can’t help but turn up the heat with this story!!
