Notes:
1889. The Scottish Play is coming home, but before the darling couple of London theatre, Henry Irving and Ellen Terry, take their acclaimed Macbeth north of the border, terror treads the boards on closing night in the capital. A supposed banshee leaves a message written in blood, foretelling someone's demise. But whose? With the company's arrival in Scotland, comes another death threat and Edinburgh's own beloved pair - Detective 'Nine-Nails' McGray and Inspector Ian Frey - enter the scene. Frey scoffs, believing it to be a publicity stunt, while McGray is convinced it's a supernatural affair. As they scrutinise the key players, they discover that Terry, Irving, and his peculiar, preoccupied assistant (one Bram Stoker) all have reasons to kill, or be killed. By occult curse or human hand, death will take a bow the night the curtain rises.

Note: Edinburgh, 1889. The murder of a nurse at the lunatic asylum awakens Inspectors Ian Frey and 'Nine-Nails' McGray on New Year's Day. Before the attack, the murderer was overheard talking to fellow patient Amy McGray, sister of 'Nine-Nails'. But Amy has been mute for five years. So why did she break her silence? And why won't she talk to her brother even now? McGray will do anything for answers - even if it means dragging Frey with him across the country, trailing a devious madman through the worst blizzard in memory, heading for Pendle Hill: home of the Lancashire witches.

Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Penguin Books
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Edinburgh, 1888. A violinist is murdered in his home. The dead virtuoso's maid swears she heard three musicians playing in the night. But with only one body in the locked practice room - and no way in or out - the case makes no sense. Fearing a national panic over another Ripper, 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 such supernatural nonsense. McGray's tragic past has driven him to superstition, but even Frey must admit that this case seems beyond reason. And once someone loses all reason, who knows what they will lose next.
