The Sunday Philosophy Club by Alexander McCall Smith - Books - Hachette Australia
I don't want to spoil the story but I felt that I was reading a detective story until I realized what it was Nothing captures the charm of Edinburgh like the bestselling Isabel Dalhousie series of novels featuring the insatiably curious philosopher and woman detective. Isabel is fond of problems, and sometimes she becomes interested in problems that are, quite frankly, none of her business.
This may be the case when Isabel sees a young man plunge to his death from the upper circle of a concert hall in Edinburgh. The resulting moral labyrinth might have stymied even Kant. Filled with thorny characters and a Scottish atmosphere as thick as a highland mist, The Sunday Philosophy Club is irresistible, and Isabel Dalhousie is the most delightful literary sleuth since Precious Ramotswe.

In this first installment, Isabel is attending a concert in the Usher Hall when she witnesses a man fall from the upper balcony. Isabel can't help wondering whether it was the result of mischance or mischief. Against the best advice of her no-nonsense housekeeper Grace, her bassoon playing friend Jamie, and even her romantically challenged niece Cat, she is morally bound to solve this case. Complete with wonderful Edinburgh atmosphere and characters straight out of a Robert Burns poem, The Sunday Philosophy Club is a delightful treat from one of our most beloved authors.
