Publisher's Summary

As a new century approaches, Edinburgh is a city divided. The wealthy residents of New Town live in comfort, while Old Town's cobblestone streets are clotted with criminals, prostitution, and poverty.

Detective Inspector Ian Hamilton is no stranger to Edinburgh's darkest crimes. Scarred by the mysterious fire that killed his parents, he faces his toughest case yet when a young man is found strangled in Holyrood Park.

With little evidence aside from a strange playing card found on the body, Hamilton engages the help of his aunt, a gifted photographer, and George Pearson, a librarian with a shared interest in the criminal mind. But the body count is rising. As newspapers spin tales of the "Holyrood Strangler," panic sets in across the city. And with each victim, the murderer is getting closer to Hamilton, the one man who dares to stop him.

    "Great story, terrible narration"

    It's as if every sentence with recorded separately with a distinct beginning and end. and then strung together. the received pronunciation british english was fine but if I had listened to this entire book I would have hurt myself.

    "Interesting Story"

    This was a interesting story a little long and drawn out good on the whole. Not sure I would go out of my way to find another book/story by this author.

    "Excellent"

    A must read especially for those like me who likes British authors. I thought the murder was someone else so it was a little surprising at the end. This author has done a good job.

    Story
    "Unfortunate Narration"

    I tried but I couldn't do it. A few times....
    Have you ever seen the episode of Seinfeld where Georges father goes to the nail salon. "A man with a Strange Halting Way of Speaking"... that's this narration.

    I just couldn't do it. The story may be wonderful but I couldn't concentrate on what he was saying.
    Oh well, another credit wasted.

    "Great read "

    A great read! The author captures the atmosphere of Lola Edinburgh so that you feel as if you are there standing beside the character. The mystery has nice twists and turns and interesting characters who are so very human.

    Story
    "Great mystery in old world Edinburgh!"

    Love the setting for this Holmes style murder mystery. Old school detecting, no modern technology, just looking at the clues. Truly must have been frustrating when detecting was first getting started....This is a great story of all that and about asking the question..."how much do we really know about people, even our own families?"

    Story
    "Didn't finish"

    I really tried to listen but couldn't get past the narration. Every sentence was so ponderous and just didn't flow smoothly into the next one. For me, it ended up sounding like a string of pronouncements!
