Reviews

Ashton's McLevy is a man obsessed with meting out justice and with demons of his own
Scotsman
PRAISE FOR THE INSPECTOR McLEVY SERIES Mclevy is a sort of Victorian Morse with a heart, prowling the mean wynds and tenements of the endlessly fascinating city. David Ashton impeccably evokes Edinburgh so vividly that you feel the cold in your bones and the menace of the Old Town's steep cobbles and dark corners
Financial Times
David Ashton's writing is excellent, his characters thoroughly convincing and his narrative grabs you
The Sherlock Holmes Society
A real page-turner
Sunday Post
McLevy is one of the greatest psychological creations and Ashton the direct heir to Robert Louis Stevenson
Brian Cox, CBE - Award-winning actor
An intriguing Victorian story... elegant and convincing
