I was hoping that there mightbe someone who read his books on the cbb? My dad mentioned reading one of his books when he was at school and had really fond memories of it. I wanted to try and get him a copy for christmas but all i have to go on is that it was set in Brazil. Has anyone read this and knows the title of the book? Thank you.

I've read several of his books, but they've all been set in Scotland.

However, there's a list of his books here:

and here:

ETA - ah, just spotted one called Rio d'Oro. Amazon doesn't give a description of it, but that sounds quite hopeful!

A-ha - looks as if that's one of three books (Rio d'Oro, There Are Worse Jungles and The Long Coffin) about an explorer who disappeared in the Amazon. Maybe he was a pal of Professor Trelawney's :lol:. It does look like it could be any one of three, though.

I read his Scottish ones many years ago and loved them. I even fell in love with William Wallace! :shock:

I have many of his Scottish ones at home. I loved his work when in was in my 20s. Haven't read any for years. Maybe I'll have to bring some back with me next time I go home.
