OSCAR DE MURIEL    Book Number: 89792    Product format: Hardback

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 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. A new twist on the traditional locked room puzzle, this is a creepy, Gothic mix of horror, history and humour which sucks you in from the first page. 423pp, family tree and plan of Edinburgh 1889.
