Inspector McLevy and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle team up in this third installment of David Ashton's acclaimed series. The year is 1860 and a Confederate officer is shot to death when he arrives to purchase a blockade-runer from Clydeside ship-builders. The pair fight to locate the missing money.

The third in David Ashton's series of McLevy thrillers, A Trick of the Light sees McLevy team up with Arthur Conan Doyle to pursue a ruthless killer. It is 1860 and a Confederate officer, Jonathen Sinclair, arrives in Edinburgh with a sheaf of money to purchase a blockade-runner from Clydeside shipbuilders. He is betrayed to the Union forces and is shot dead by their secret agents. Who are they and where is Sinclair's money? Meanwhile, a beautiful young American spiritualist, Sophia Adler, is the toast of upper-class Edinburgh with her dramatic seances. However, she could yet prove to be the deadliest woman McLevy and Conan Doyle will ever encounter.
