Author(s): Alexander McCall Smith
Introducing the new series from the international bestselling author of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency books -- the Sunday Philosophy Club series is set in Edinburgh, Scotland, and stars Isabel Dalhousie, editor of The Review of Applied Ethics and part-time detective.
Isabel enjoys wading through the mysteries of life, everything from the morning's crossword to higher philosophical dilemmas, often with the advice of her ethically upright housekeeper, Grace. In this first novel of the series, Isabel witnesses a young man plunge to his death from the upper balcony of the Edinburgh Concert Hall. When Isabel discovers that the young victim had uncovered illicit activities at the brokerage house where he worked, the hunt for answers, and the killer, is on.
This new series is a delightful look at a reasonable and logical woman who keeps getting involved in mysteries despite all reason and logic.
