Summary

As a new century approaches, Edinburgh is a city divided. The wealthy residents of New Town live in comfort, while Old Town's cobblestone streets are clotted with criminals, prostitution, and poverty.
Detective Inspector Ian Hamilton is no stranger to Edinburgh's darkest crimes. Scarred by the mysterious fire that killed his parents, he faces his toughest case yet when a young man is found strangled in Holyrood Park.
With little evidence aside from a strange playing card found on the body, Hamilton engages the help of his aunt, a gifted photographer, and George Pearson, a librarian with a shared interest in the criminal mind. But the body count is rising. As newspapers spin tales of the "Holyrood Strangler," panic sets in across the city. And with each victim, the murderer is getting closer to Hamilton, the one man who dares to stop him.

Continuity errors

In the characters background info were irritating and made it hard to see this through to the end.

Dark and Depressing . . . did I say DEPRESSING!!!

I don't think there was one character that wasn't neurotic, depraved, addicted or highly annoying. Can't think of one character that I liked or could feel a connection to. I don't think I ever said this but . . . it really was a waste of my money.

Unfortunate Narration

I tried but I couldn't do it. A few times....
Have you ever seen the episode of Seinfeld where Georges father goes to the nail salon. "A man with a Strange Halting Way of Speaking"... that's this narration.

I just couldn't do it. The story may be wonderful but I couldn't concentrate on what he was saying.
Oh well, another credit wasted.
