Porter front coverMr Fairley: The Oldest Banker in Glasgow

I wrote this family history for my uncle and am grateful that it has sold in four countries, and forms part of an history lecture and cemetery tour in England. It must be something about the MI6 spy, Persian oil intrigue, haunted pub, or the myriad of other fascinating tales from this amazing family. Click here to read my post.
