About K.M. Hardy 

K.M. Hardy has held an interest in solving crimes since childhood. Graduating with a degree in Criminal Justice in the top ten percent of her class, she went on to work for the government for ten years.


Her experience in Law Enforcement and Corrections has given her invaluable insight into the world of crime and politics, which had earned her a finalist spot in a ghostwriting competition for the renowned James Patterson.


She currently resides in the mountains of Utah with her husband, their three children, and their faithful German Shepherd.


KM Hardy's Scots Honor moves at a fast pace, with many twists and turns. It's complex with quite a large number of characters and events that eventually fit together in the conclusion.


In places, it stretches the imagination and contains several amazing coincidences. Sam is a likable character despite his flaws which make him very human, and the reader is drawn to Liz who is fighting appalling odds while ready to protect her secret at all costs.


The novel has everything; a bank holdup, a pedophile, several fights, a divorce, a child falling foul of the law, previously unknown familial relationships, and drug running. One of the nice touches was Ronald, the strawberry plant who had two bad accidents but lived to flower another day.

Intense and exciting, The Redcap (A Sam McKay Novel) by K.M. Hardy is a thrilling novel filled with twists and turns.

Filled with avarice, malice, and murder, the story is an intricately woven web of intrigue and suspense. It is a well-written story with a complex plot, engaging characters, and a captivating storyline. I was captured by Sam's brogue from the first page, and the further I got into the story, the more I admired his character. 

This is a stunning novel that is sure to delight everyone who loves a good murder mystery.

K M Hardy is an incredible writer! She has a way with words that has you picturing everything as you read. I could even hear Sam's accent in my mind. Scots honor will leave you wanting more. I couldn't put it down. This is the best book I've ever read!!!

- Aussiemum

This is seriously a PHENOMENAL book. The author was able to create characters that you are able to really know, understand, and want to learn more about. The first half is a perfect balance of introductions, presentation of clues/important pieces of information, and building of suspense. In the second half of the book, the author throws the reader into plot twist after plot twist and so many turns.
