Edinburgh. Genteel home to ladies who lunch, attend concerts and art exhibitions, and who do good by stealth.
Ladies such as Isabel Dalhousie. But behind its regimented Georgian facades, Edinburgh's moral compasses are spinning with greed, lust and murderous intent. Isabel knows this, and rather relishes it. An accomplished philosopher and editor of the Review of Applied Ethics, she knows all about the difference between good and bad. Which is why she is an amateur sleuth. And why instinct tells her that the man who tumbled to his death in front of her eyes after a concert in the Usher Hall didn't fall. He was pushed.
