Product description

Product Description

Edinburgh, Scotland, 1788. When respected Gentleman and City Councillor, Deacon William Brodie, chases his love of gambling, he is drawn into living a double life and soon the respectability of day gives way to a life of crime at night.

Betrayed by an accomplice, and revealed as a "Gentleman by day, thief by night", Brodie escapes to London where he is helped to leave for Holland. Eventually captured in Amsterdam and returned to Edinburgh, he is then faced with a trial before a city where once he was a leading citizen.

In Edinburgh's High Court, Brodie is found guilty and sentenced to be hanged, but his closest friend has a different idea and, in full view of everyone, he takes his riskiest gamble yet - his life for the turn of a card.

Based on the true story of one of Edinburgh's most infamous sons, Deacon Brodie: A Double Life is available as either a Paperback or an eBook.
