    London had Sherlock Holmes. The dark alleys of Edinburgh had Inspector McLevy.

A burglary and murder at the home of Sir Thomas Bouch, the enigmatic architect of the ill-fated Tay Bridge, sets Inspector James McLevy off on a train of brutal killings, lethal liaisons, and double suicide which leads to a violent encounter with an old enemy, Hercules Dunbar.

    A solid addition to McLevy series

    Now that I'm familiar with the author/narrator's breathy style and heavy Scottish accent (having read the first mystery) I fully enjoyed this one. The..Show More »
