Product Description


'David Ashton, like Robert Louis Stevenson or Ian Rankin, is inspired by the beauty-and-beast nature of Edinburgh. His interpretation of James McLevy is worthy of the original man' SHERLOCK HOLMES SOCIETY 'McLevy is a sort of Victorian Morse with a heart' FINANCIAL TIMES

Read them all! Begin with his short stories, and continue. Get on with it David Ashton...We are ready for more.! Love the way he brings in famous characters of the period, and I won't mention them, who we in Edinburgh at the time, or at least contemporaries of the BE. His take on social privilege is also good. And, this might be a spoiler, Inspector McLevy is no respecter of authority or position. Rather, he is a seeker of truth and adherence to the law.
Great Reading April 6 2014

All of Ashtons McLevy mysteries are not only enjoyable but full of suspense with a personal twist.....but then knowing Edinburgh as I do this only goes to add to the enjoyment.
