First published in 1914 and praised by John Buchan as ‘one of the finest romances of our time’, The New Road is a classic suspense thriller. The new road of the title refers to the military road which General Wade carved into the Highlands to destroy the clans, and it is along this road that events unfold. It is 1773, thirty years after the Jacobite rebellion and the time of the Highland Clearances. When two adventurers, Ninian Campbell and Aeneas MacMaster, travel north on a clandestine mission to investigate rumors of a planned uprising, they find themselves pursued by mysterious enemies and drawn into a web of intrigue and corruption. The New Road was Neil Munro’s last and most accomplished novel.
