Author(s): Alexander McCall Smith
Isabel Dalhousie applies her moral philosopher's mind to wrongdoings in Edinburgh, and will have to call upon her powers of deduction and her unflappable moral code to unravel another social mystery in the new novel from the bestselling author of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series.
In Edinburgh, rumours and gossip abound. But Isabel knows very well that such things can't be taken at face value. Still, the latest whispers hint at mysterious goings-on, and who but Isabel can be trusted to get to the bottom of it?
Meanwhile, she must also deal with the demands of two small children, her lovely husband, and her rather tempestuous niece, Cat, whose latest romantic entanglement comes with some new complications. Still, even with so much to juggle, Isabel, through the application of good sense, logic and ethics, will, as always, navigate a way through.
