The continuing adventures from Isabel Dalhousie, Edinburgh philosopher and curious observer of the behaviour of her fellow man.

This was a light enjoyable read, but the attempt to reproduce an Australian accent was absolutely dreadful. For an Australian living in Sydney to have to listen to this it was painful and irritating. The voice of the Australian character who was looking for information about her natural parents was a blend of a South African twang and broad rough Australian sounds of a centuary ago! Other than that it was a pleasant story but nothing remarkable.
I have read all in this series and am waiting for the next as Isabel's life unfolds. McCall Smith is a great story teller and the endings are always positive.
