Publisher's Summary

A thrilling short story featuring Inspector James McLevy and Jean Brash, available exclusively in audiobook. 

London had Sherlock Holmes. The dark alleys of Edinburgh had Inspector McLevy. 

'A scarlet garter', she remarked suddenly.


'Always thought she was a cut above the rest. Aye, wore a scarlet garter.'

'No sign o' that with the corpse', he muttered, rising from the table.

When the body of a young woman is discovered in an alleyway, Inspector James McLevy recognises the victim immediately: Peggy Ambrose, former employee at Edinburgh's best bawdy hoose, the Just Land.

Peggy had left the Just Land under a cloud, accused of theft, but no one knows where she went next. Working with the inimitable Jean Brash, Inspector McLevy investigates the murder, from the drinking dens of Edinburgh to a mysterious and secret society. 

You can enjoy more from the world of James McLevy with the Inspector McLevy series and the Jean Brash Mysteries, narrated by David Ashton and Siobhan Redmond.
