Publisher's Summary

Amateur sleuth Isabel Dalhousie is a philosopher who uses her training to solve unusual mysteries. She edits the Review of Applied Ethics and hosts The Sunday Philosophy Club at her house in Edinburgh. Behind the city's Georgian facades its moral compasses are spinning with greed, dishonesty and murderous intent. Instinct tells Isabel that the young man who tumbled to his death in front of her eyes at a concert didn't fall. He was pushed. With Isabel Dalhousie, Alexander Mccall Smith introduces a new and pneumatic female sleuth to tackle murder, mayhem - and the mysteries of life.

Not too light, not too heavy,easy listening.

Like most of Alexander McCall Smith's stories, 'The Sunday Philosophy Club..'
is a little gem. At odd points you are nudged into thinking ever so gently.
Nothing too hard.
Isabel Dalhouse is easily drawn into trying to understand why a young man died.
It is a plausible entry to the mystery. And that is unusual.
I found the reader's clipped style of reading distracting. At times I had to go back and listen again for that reason, to follow the story.
If you commute by train and can pause to look out a window to contemplate a little from time to time, and you like McCall Smith then you could really enjoy this story.
Hilary Neville's style of reading distracted me, it may not distract you. Listen to the sample.

- Sandy "Love having someone read me a story. Fires in the hearth, rain on the roof, sunny days and surf. Good friends, good food and J S Bach."

Found it hard to follow and listen to

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No, too hard to follow, goes in too. Many directions. Normally like his writing but he lost me in this one.
