Shadow of the Serpent, Paperback Book

Shadow of the Serpent Paperback



The first in the McLevy series, this is wonderfully evocative detective fiction, based in dark, violent, Victorian Edinburgh.

It's 1880 and the city is gripped by election fever.

But while the rich and educated argue about politics, in the dank wynds of the city it's a struggle just to stay alive, especially when a murderous madman seems to have resurfaced after 30 years.

McLevy is lured into a world of politics, perversion, deception and mystery and into the shadow of the serpent.
