Professional reviews

"The ninth book featuring Scottish philosopher and inadvertent detective Isabel Dalhousie is a delight for fans of the series. The leisurely paced plot combined with well-loved characters is like a retreat for the mind. Narrator Davina Porter adds even more charm to Isabel's philosophical meanderings as she edits "The Review of Applied Ethics," raises her 3-year-old son with her much adored younger husband, Jamie, and is solicited by a friend to help solve the mystery of an art theft. Fans of the audio series already know that Porter's delightful Scots brogue is integral to making the story so pleasant. Newcomers looking for a relaxing distraction are encouraged to start at the beginning of the series. M.M.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
