Review quote

A real page-turner * Sunday Post * Ashton's McLevy is a man obsessed with meting out justice and with demons of his own * Scotsman * David Ashton's writing is excellent, his characters thoroughly convincing and his narrative grabs you * The Sherlock Holmes Society * McLevy is one of the greatest psychological creations and Ashton the direct heir to Robert Louis Stevenson * Brian Cox, CBE - Award-winning actor * An intriguing Victorian story... elegant and convincing * The Times * PRAISE FOR THE INSPECTOR McLEVY SERIES
Mclevy is a sort of Victorian Morse with a heart, prowling the mean wynds and tenements of the endlessly fascinating city. David Ashton impeccably evokes Edinburgh so vividly that you feel the cold in your bones and the menace of the Old Town's steep cobbles and dark corners * Financial Times *
