Publisher's Summary

Gil Cunningham had hoped that the first time he set foot in the brothel on the Drygate it would also be his last, but by the time all was settled he felt quite at home within its artfully painted chambers. The bawdy house, along with the neighbouring property and two more in Strathblane, are all part of a deal offered to Gil and his wife Alys by the forceful Dame Isabella. Her proposal also involves Gil's young ward, and matters are further confused by an outbreak of counterfeit coins in Glasgow, which Gil has been ordered to investigate.
Then Dame Isabella is found dead in strange circumstances, and the more Gil pursues the cause of her death, the more false coins he finds. And then the bawd-mistress, the enigmatic Madam Xanthe, gets involved and rumours circulate that the Devil is abroad in Strathblane. By the time Gil and Alys have untangled matters, some very surprising - and sinister - thing have come to light...

not as good as the others.

I found this book a bit hard going. it deals with land ownership, counterfeit coins and of course a murder
although well written with well drawn characters it leaves you dissatisfied at the end. a long way to go without solving who the murderer was. realistically not all murders are solved so this must be the point the author is trying to make.
once more a good performance by Andrew Watson.

Another brilliant book

A ripping yarn that can be read alone but is better following the others in order as there are threads running on through each adding depth and interest throughout
