The Edinburgh Dead

The Edinburgh Dead by Brian Ruckley, UK / AUS paperback

About the Book

Edinburgh 1828: it’s a city populated by mad alchemists who treat Frankenstein as textbook rather than novel and by a criminal underclass prepared to treat with the darkest of powers. And one officer, from the recently formed Edinburgh City Police, must follow the trail of undead hounds, emptied graves, brutal murders and mob violence into the deepest and darkest corners of Edinburgh’s underworld – both literal and magical – and back again to the highest reaches of elegant, intellectual Edinburgh society.

    I would buy it, simply on the grounds that Brian Ruckley wrote it.

    I was hooked when I read the brief description, and intriguing line “But there are no laws for the dead”.

    After reading the Photo-trailer page, however, I will be chomping at the bit for this one!
