Point the Finger of Blame

Derek Smith

Jimmy McLeod grows up on a remote Scottish Estate, hoping to follow in his father’s footsteps. At the beginning of the Korean War, however, he is called up for national service, and this has far reaching effects on the rest of his life. Unable to stay on the estate on his return, he moves to southern England and works in the building trade. Jimmy’s life is far from easy as he continues to struggles to find a settled life for himself.

Jimmy’s trials include performing as a sniper in the war, clashing with the laird’s nephew and being implicated in several murders. With many twists and turns, the book follows Jimmy and his increasingly unpredictable journey through life.

The story shows how an ordinary man, through circumstances not all of his making, can find his whole life’s course altered. It also demonstrates how, when trained to kill, he can lose his way in life.
