    Description

    Banff in the 1620s. A man staggering down the street. He appears drunk, but he's been poisoned. The victim, an apothecary's apprentice, is discovered dead in Alexander Seaton's house, a fallen minister whose life lies in tatters after his affair with the Laird's daughter is discovered and he is cast out of the kirk in disgrace.

    When his friend is accused of the apprentice's murder, Alexander sets out to solve the crime and clear his friend's name.

    Very interesting

    As a big fan of this type of mystery story, I was delighted with this book. At about 1 hour from the end of the book I still had absolutely no idea of who had done it. That can't be said about many books.
    The thing that I did not like about it was the very strong scottish accent that Crawford Logan had for some charaters, as well as some arcaic scottish vocabulary that Shona MacLean used, to the point that I really did not understand what was being said amd missed many dialogs.

    great listen

    I thought the book was very interesting! Good mystery and it definitely kept me guessing, which is pretty rare for me. I see a lot of other reviews didn't like the narrator but I thought he was excellent, I didn't mind the accent or the Scottish terms. I would definitely recommend this and I will be buying the sequels.
