David Ashton's writing is excellent, his characters thoroughly convincing, and his narrative grabs you - I was going to say, by the throat - and doesn't let you go' - The Sherlock Holmes Society of London 'McLevy is a sort of Victorian Morse with a heart, prowling the mean wynds and tenements of the endless fascinating city. David Ashton impeccably evokes Edinburgh so vividly that you can feel the cold in your bones and the menace of the Old Town's steep cobbles and dark corners' - Financial Times 'Dripping with melodrama and derring-do' - The Herald 'Ashton's McLevy ... is a man obsessed with meting out justice, and with demons of his own' - The Scotsman The second in a new series of McLevy books, Fall from Grace revolves around the terrible Tay Bridge disaster. The story begins with a break-in and murder at the Edinburgh home of Sir Thomas Bouch, the enigmatic, egotistical builder of the Tay Bridge. McLevy is brought in to investigate. With the help of brothel madam Jean Brash, McLevy finds the murderer, but there is much, much more to unfold: murder, arson, sexual obsession and suicide.
