One of the cast of characters from the Findo Gask series of hard-boiled fantasy detective novels by Trevor Hopkins.
The series currently comprises nine books, all in various stages of completion:
Most of the characters in the novels are based on place names in the Perth and Kinross region of Scotland, many of them close to the tiny village of Findo Gask.
Madderty is a village in Strathearn, Perth and Kinross. It lies on the former railway line connecting Perth and Crieff.
The Gask Ridge and its Roman road lie to the south
and the remains of Inchaffray Abbey to the north.
Madderty is mentioned in a charter of about 1200, at which time there was a church dedicated to Saint Ethernan in the village.
