Summary
  • The brutal slaying of a violinist in his home in 1888 sparks a locked room murder mystery investigated by two diametrically opposed Edinburgh detectives. --Publisher
  • Edinburgh, 1888. When a violinist is murdered in his home, his maid swears she heard three musicians playing in the night, but only one body is in the locked practice room. There is no other way in or out-- black magic symbols are on the floor-- and the suspects talk of a cursed violin played by the Devil himself. Scotland Yard sends Inspector Ian Frey to investigate under the cover of a fake department specializing in the occult. However, Frey's new boss, Detective 'Nine-Nails' McGray, actually believes in the supernatural. Even Frey must admit that this case seems beyond reason. And once someone loses all reason, who knows what they will lose next ..
