Publisher's Summary

Superstition and murder haunt nineteenth-century Scotland in a twisting mystery by the prize-winning author of Edinburgh Twilight and Edinburgh Dusk.

Spiritualism has captured the public’s imagination. Séances are all the rage, and Detective Ian Hamilton’s otherwise sensible aunt Lillian is not immune to their allure. But for Ian, indulging her superstitions has its limits. When members of Lillian’s circle of séance friends begin turning up dead, Ian doesn’t need a medium to tell him these aren’t freak accidents.

With the help of his friend Arthur Conan Doyle, Ian investigates, and he is soon drawn into a dark world of believers and tricksters, and a puzzling series of murders with no pattern, no motive, and no end in sight. Most alarming, the crimes conjure up the ghosts of Ian’s own past, including the mysterious deaths of his parents, which have haunted him for years.

As two cases converge, science collides with the uncanny, and Ian must confront truths that are more disturbing than he could ever have imagined.

A much enjoyed series.

Once again I,find this novel like the others compelling to listen to. I know that because I spent time in Edinburg during cold winter weeks the story more relatable to me as I can picture many locations in the city the author describes. What
a treat for me because I enjoyed the city and it’s history so much. However, the narrator is wonderful and perfect for this type of novel, always holding my attention and making me look for times to be able to catch a few minutes to listen. I am pleased to see the main character Hamilton become more open and better able to question himself towards the end of the sorry. This makes me interested to see what happens in the next novel with respect to his continued personality development. I do love the historical mysteries and I fine this series more complex and intelligent than many. I also like the increasing richness of the other characters as their thoughts and feelings become more known. . I do love the historical mysteries and I fine this series more complex and intelligent than many. series for me is a very satisfying read with some closures and room for one to wonder - What next? I really do look forward to the next offering in this series!

Supernatural Influences!

Watch out Inspector Hamilton!
This historical fiction plot thickens with ghosts, double crosses, and a sinister long game forming in the shadows.

I want more.

I have read the first three books in this series and they are absolutely excellent. at this point it looks like the next book hasn't been written yet. That's the one problem with reading a series before it is finished being written. I just want more.

Love

I love this series. I think that the performance adds so much to the story. I can't wait for the next book as the author left us hanging. So glad Ian is going to live a little with Fiona.

Great historical fiction fun

I really enjoyed this book. The police procedural is interesting and probably accurate for the time period. Ms. Lawrence does a great job with the mystery. She reels you in right away with likeable characters plus the addition of Arthur Conan Doyle. Simon Mattacks is fantastic with the narration I highly recommend.

Could do with a British editor

Good fun stories nicely read but there were one or two language discrepancies; sidewalk, leash, trash etc which just feel wrong, and I think it more likely that Victorian Edinburgh would be infested with woodworm rather than termites.

Littered with Americanisms

I enjoy these books but the stray American terms stuck out as lazy, especially when the author went over the top to show us she had discovered Scottish slang! If that hadn’t been so annoying, I’d have given it 4 stars and a glowing review.

Enjoyable 3rd part of trilogy

Characters seem lifelike as you either feel empathy or revulsion. As with the previous books the story keeps your interest from beginning to end. Glad to think the ending may leave an opportunity for another chapter in the Edinburgh saga.

In another world

I have read all three of these Edinburgh books I can’t wait for the next.
I have been totally transferred to the dark and sinister world of Victorian Edinburgh.
The characters are so believable. Loved it from the first work.
