"Isabel Dalhousie applies her moral philosopher's mind to wrongdoings in Edinburgh, and will have to call upon her powers of deduction and her unflappable moral code to unravel another social mystery in the new novel from the bestselling author of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series. In Edinburgh, rumours and gossip abound. But Isabel knows very well that such things can't be taken at face value. Still, the latest whispers hint at mysterious goings-on, and who but Isabel can be trusted to get to the bottom of it? Meanwhile, she must also deal with the demands of two small children, her lovely husband, and her rather tempestuous niece, Cat, whose latest romantic entanglement comes with some new complications. Still, even with so much to juggle, Isabel, through the application of good sense, logic and ethics, will, as always, navigate a way through."--

I always look forward to the next edition in the lives of Isabel and Jamie. She is always so concerned with ethics and helping others to make their lives more happy and successful. As a philosopher, Isabel is always analyzing the right thing to do. I am afraid that this time her efforts to help Cat may lead to tragedy. Kristi & Abby Tabby

As readers know, Isabel Dalhousie is an ethicist and in the 13th book, she asks, “Where were the boundaries of your moral responsibility for others.” That is the center question of this book. She’s been asked to be the executor of a man’s estate. She hardly knows him, but deciding which of his cousin’s should get his extensive plot of open land is complicated when she discovers she has an unpleasant history with one of the cousins’ wives. Her niece, Cat, owner of the deli where Isabel often helps has become engaged to a man who appears to be after Cat’s trust money. Isabel ponders issues throughout the book and comes, to no surprise to readers, to an elegant and satisfying resolution of both problems.
