Publisher's Summary

“Why is it,” Barclay Curle grumbles to his agent Jonah, “that all the regional Edinburgh detectives have monosyllabic first names like Jack and Bob?” Then Curle publishes his newest book – about an Edinburgh detective called Doug – inciting a letter from an anonymous admirer accusing him of stealing the murders she’s committed. Fact and fiction become increasingly inseparable when a dead woman is found, murdered by the method favoured by the serial killer in Curle’s novel.

For Detective Inspector Meldrum – first name Jim – Curle seems the most obvious suspect. Faced with a second murder and a darkening cloud of suspicion, Curle decides to take action. After all, who has more experience of solving murder mysteries than a crime novelist?
