Cannibalistic cave dwellers. Huge, terrifying clans roaming the moors, seeking out human flesh to rend and consume. It sounds like the horrors of prehistoric savages, but it falls well within recorded history of civilized men. The first half of the fifteenth century saw savagery and fear that erased the line between man and beast.

Just eight miles east of the modern city of Edinburgh, Sawney Bean and his murderous family prowled the Scottish coasts, robbing travelers and consuming their victims. “Stick… stock… stuck. You’ve run out of luck. Kill... kill… kill. We eat our fill,” they chant as they descend upon their prey. There’s little the community can do but be hunted.

This horrifying tale of nightmare-inducing monsters--inspired by true events--comes into stark reality in THE FLESH EATERS, an imaginative novel by Edgar Award winning author L.A. Morse. Beware, any readers faint of heart. It’s those soft hearts that are the tenderest meat.

L. A. Morse won a Best Paperback Original Edgar Award from the MWA (Mystery Writers of America) for his first novel, THE OLD DICK, an homage to the classic detective tale with an 80-year-old working detective. He went on to publish two novels in an over-the-top re-take on the private-eye style mystery, SLEAZE and THE BIG ENCHILADA. Under a pseudonym, Runa Fairleigh, he switched sub-genres and created a perfect example of the classic cozy mystery, AN OLD-FASHIONED MYSTERY. In a complete change of styles, he then wrote a period thriller based on the historical character Sawney Beane, the notorious and legendary cannibal killer of Highland Scotland, called THE FLESH EATERS.
