I have really enjoyed books 1 and 2 of this series, but this one is by far my favorite. At first, I was thrown to find out that the narrator had changed and was a little bummed. However, I quickly became accustomed to Ms. Boyce and enjoyed the remainder of the audio. The main character is getting stronger and more confident in her sleuthing skills, and I continue to enjoy the scenery. The author and narrator make you feel like you are in Scotland!
Thanks to Tantor Media for supplying me this read in exchange for an honest review.
Delaney Nichols, originally of Kansas but settling happily into her new life as a bookseller in Edinburgh, works at The Cracked Spine in the heart of town. She’s recently befriended a few medical school students after they came into the shop to sell some antique medical tomes. But when one of the students’ friends is found murdered outside in the alley, Delaney takes it upon herself to help bring the murderer to justice.
During her investigation, Delaney finds some old scalpels in the bookshop’s warehouse – she finds out that they belonged to a long-dead doctor whose story might be connected to the present-day murder. It’s all Delaney can do to race to solve this crime before time runs out and she ends up in danger herself.
