Description

Madame Katerina, Detective 'Nine Nails' McGray's most trusted clairvoyant, hosts a séance for three of Edinburgh's wealthiest families.  

The following morning everyone is found dead, with Madame Katerina being the only survivor. When questioned she alleges a tormented spirit killed the families for revenge.  

McGray, even though he believes her, must find a rational explanation that holds up in court, else Katerina will be sentenced to death.  

Inspector Ian Frey is summoned to help, which turns out to be difficult as he is still dealing with the loss of his uncle and has developed a form of post-traumatic stress (not yet identified in the 19th century).  

This seems an impossible puzzle. Either something truly supernatural has occurred - or a fiendishly clever plot is covering a killer's tracks....

Great dialogue

The dialogue is brilliantly written. It is humorous and believable. The characters are engaging. The narrator is marvelous. The story is very very slow to develop. After 12 chapters I skipped to the end. I liked the end. Very inventive.

Even more gripping than the previous

Another great chapter in the Frey-McGray story, this one even more gripping than the previous. It is interesting to see how trauma has affected Frey and the dynamic of his relationships. It was also nice to have a new glimpse into McGray's personal historal. I'm already looking forward to the next one.

Not as good as previous books

Top marks for the narrator who once again brought Edinburgh to life. sadly the story was much weaker than previous ones, with long periods of nothingness, Frey feeling sorry for himself and drinking. when the story does pick up it's great, but could have left out half of the waffle.

My favourite

That was my favourite Frey & McGray story so far. I liked the case, the characters and the solution. And the narrator was perfect, like in the other audiobooks of the series.
