The first of the critically acclaimed McLevy series. A wonderfully evocative descent into the dank wynds of Victorian Edinburgh. McLevy, is lured into a world of politics, perversion, deception and mystery in his attempts to find a murderous madman who appears to have re-emerged after 30 years.

The first in the McLevy series, this is wonderfully evocative detective fiction, based in dark, violent, Victorian Edinburgh. It's 1880 and the city is gripped by election fever. But while the rich and educated argue about politics, in the dank wynds of the city it's a struggle just to stay alive, especially when a murderous madman seems to have resurfaced after 30 years. McLevy is lured into a world of politics, perversion, deception and mystery and into the shadow of the serpent.
