Sample text:

The man was out cold.

  Grace McNish sat on his chest, looking down at him. Well, she thought, her head was surprisingly clear consid­ering she had just slipped and fallen from an old rowan tree, and had had the blessed good fortune to land upon a dastardly McNab.

  She remembered him riding up the trail as if he owned it, the vile McNab plaid wrapped around his large frame and billowing about him like the devil himself.  She remembered pulling her dirk.  She even remembered tak­ing a step onto a lower branch so she could leap on top of him at the exact, perfect moment. The trouble was, she never remembered that exact, perfect moment.

  She leaned closer, her dirk clutched in one fist, and scowled at him, trying to look mean and arrogant and cunning.  Like the McNabs.

  She searched his face for signs of a trick. It was known throughout the Highlands that a McNab could not be trusted. They had an unending hunger for land, and any­thing else of value, particularly if it belonged to the Clan McNish, which they fed on the same way leeches fed on blood.

  She placed the blade of her dirk close to his neck.

  He did not move.

  Was he dead?
