The year is 1864 and Detective Inspector Faro's idyllic life has been shattered by the escape of convicted murderer John McLaw. With countless dead end sightings of the killer and further criminal activity Faro realises that this case is far more complicated than he had first assumed. When the disappearance of a maid comes to light, Faro begins to think there could be a link between her disappearance and the murder of Annie McLaw. His determination to unearth the truth becomes personal and in a race against time to solve the anonymities of the case, he takes matters into his own hands.

And where better to place a Victorian detective than the streets of nineteenth-century Edinburgh, with its elegant society masking the city's delinquent underbelly#8212 Edinburgh Evening News

Finally I can add, another great historical mystery author to my "must read" list. Unfortunately, Richmond only has this one in the series. Well written and a likeable and good looking Victorian detective.
