Amateur sleuth Isabel Dalhousie is a philosopher who uses her training to solve unusual mysteries. She edits the Review of Applied Ethics
, addressing such questions as "Truth telling in sexual relationships", and she also hosts The Sunday Philosophy Club at her house in Edinburgh.
Behind the city's Georgian facades, its moral compasses are spinning with greed, dishonesty, and murderous intent. Instinct tells Isabel that the young man who tumbled to his death in front of her eyes at a concert didn't fall. He was pushed.
The Sunday Philosophy Club marks new territory, but familiar moral ground, from the author of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. With Isabel Dalhousie, Alexander Mccall Smith introduces a new and pneumatic female sleuth to tackle murder, mayhem, and the mysteries of life.
