London had Sherlock Holmes. The dark alleys of Edinburgh had Inspector McLevy.

When the body of Thomas Forsythe, tobacco merchant and lay preacher, is discovered near the waters of Leith, Inspector James McLevy is called to investigate.
As Christmas approaches, McLevy's investigations lead him to the dockside taverns of Edinburgh, and deep into the belly of the beast himself...
