Nothing captures the charm of Edinburgh like the bestselling Isabel Dalhousie series of novels featuring the insatiably curious philosopher and woman detective.Â Whether investigating a case or a problem of philosophy, the indefatigable Isabel Dalhousie, one of fictionâs most richly developed amateur detectives, is always ready to pursue the answers to all of lifeâs questions, large and small.
When Isabel is asked to cover for vacationing Cat at her delicatessen, Isabel meets a man with a most interesting problem. He recently had a heart transplant and is suddenly haunted by memories of events that never happened to him.The situation piques her insatiable curiosity: Could the memories be connected with the donorâs demise? Naturally, Isabelâs friend Jamie thinks it is none of Isabelâs business. Meanwhile, Grace, Isabelâs housekeeper, has become infatuated with a man at her spiritualist meeting, and Cat brings home an Italian lothario. That makes for some particularly tricky problemsâboth practical and philosophicalâfor Isabel to unravel in this enormously engaging and highly unusual mystery.
