cover blurb:
Behind Edinburgh's regimented Georgian facades, its moral compasses are spinning with greed, dishonesty, lust and murderous intent. Isabel Dalhousie knows this. Isabel, in fact, rather relishes it. An accomplished philosopher and editor of Review of Applied Ethics, she knows all about the differences between good and bad. Which is probably why, by instinct, she is an amateur sleuth. And instinct tells her the man who tumbled to his death in front of her eys after a concert in the Usher Hall didn't fall. He was pushed...

Got this book from a friend. It was a nice read, nothing too exciting, and the ending was somewhat unexpected (although I guess not all that surprising).

The book arrived to Prague yesterday and as it is the first day of my holiday now, I was excited to read it already last night. Thank you very much jellycat! After I have read it, I will certainly find more readers for this book.

This was a fast read! I really enjoyed it - I think it was just what I needed after very stressful period in my life. Coffee smelling, wine tasting book with lots of very nice thoughts and plenty of beautiful calmness. Mainly that calmness. No hurry for too many things to happen. It also gave me excellent company in the sleepless nights with a cup of tea. The book ended almost too early, I would have liked still to spend some time in the world of Isabel, but luckily I have a sequel waiting... and couple of readers hopefully too.

Many many thanks jellycat!!

Much more fun than expected from a 'female amateur detective' novel! Thoughtful philosophical/moral ruminations (at times a bit didactic!) and a leisurely pace of action made this simple story quite enjoyable to read. Yes, you can taste the wine and smell the coffee, and have tea with Isabel... looking forward to that again after a while...
