An intriguing Victorian story... elegant and convincing (The Times)

McLevy is one of the greatest psychological creations and Ashton the direct heir to Robert Louis Stevenson (Brian Cox, star of the BBC Radio 4 McLevy series)

David Ashton's writing is excellent, his characters thoroughly convincing and his narrative grabs you (The Sherlock Holmes Society)

Ashton's McLevy is a man obsessed with meting out justice and with demons of his own (Scotsman)

A real page-turner (The Sunday Post)

Dripping with melodrama and derring-do (Herald)

You can easily imagine the bustling life of a major port, and the stories are alive with a most amazing array of characters (BBC Radio 4)
