When three friends decide to revive the challenge of the legendary poacher John Macnab (to take a grouse, salmon and deer from three Royal Estates), they plan for everything - except an unstoppable young woman with a past and time on her hands.

The wager To poach a salmon, grouse and a deer from three Royal Estates.
The challengers Three men in a mid-life crisis who should know better.
The wild card A flirtatious female journalist who won't take no for an answer.
Striding over the Scottish Highlands with a poet's eye on the wilderness and a firm grip on the adventure, Andrew Greig re-imagines John Buchan's classic novel with a little less tweed, a little more sex, and just the right measure of whisky.
