More About the Author

Alanna Knight MBE was born on Tyneside of Scots-Irish parentage. Her first award-winning novel 'Legend of the Loch' was published in 1969 and she has now written more than sixty novels (including sixteen in the acclaimed Inspector Faro series and seven featuring his daughter Rose McQuinn). In an impressive writing career spanning over forty years she began with historical novels and in 1988 launched into historical crime with Inspector Faro and his daughter Rose. All are available as e-books.

She also wrote a series of books about Tam Eildor, a time-travelling detective, and Alanna is a life-long fan and an authority on Robert Louis Stevenson. In 'A Violent Passion' she writes about his marriage to Fanny Osbourne. This is also available in e-books.

Alanna lives in Edinburgh, beneath Arthur's Seat, in the dramatic surroundings of Scottish history. A founding member and Honorary President of the Scottish Association of Writers and the Edinburgh Writers' Club and member of Crime writers' Association, she enjoys researching her books, loves travelling, walking, painting and talking to readers in libraries.

In 2014 she was awarded an MBE for services to literature.

Her books, also in large print and audio rate, are amongst the most borrowed.

Praise from Ian Rankin:' Alanna Knight could hardly be better with a crime novelist's insight into motive and aftermath.'

I only discovered Alanna Knight while I was at the Bloody Scotland event this year (2013). Great stories to read and the historical details are very interesting. This book involves some murders that are very close to home for Faro and Vince. His daughter Rose also makes an appearance in this book. You also find out a secret that Faro must keep to himself for now. As usual though Faro and Vince always get there man/woman in the end. I thought I had sussed out who the murderer was about half way through the book but I was way off.

I've been thoroughly enjoying reading the series on my kindle and have been buying the next one as I've finished each book. This one though confused the hell out of me. If you read them in the order that Amazon has them numbered then by reading this one as number 8 you feel as though a few years have been jumped past. This is actually book number 11 which is why years have been jumped. Amazon's numbering of the books is a wee bit off which makes it quite annoying considering I am now desperate to find out if Faro keeps the secret he has discovered. Reading list according to [...] is

1 Enter Second Murderer
2 Blood Line
3 Deadly Beloved
4 Killing Cousins
5 A Quiet Death
6 To Kill a Queen
7 The Evil that Men Do (sold on Amazon as 11)
8 The Missing Duchess (sold on Amazon as 7)
9 The Bull Slayers
10 Murder by Appointment
11 The Coffin Lane Murders (sold on Amazon as 8)
12 The Final Enemy
13 Unholy Trinity
14 Faro and the Royals
15 Murder in Paradise
16 The Seal King Murders

Cold, dark December in Edinburgh, a woman's body is found in the snow. An uneasy advent for the festive season. This story has some interesting twists. So give it a try as with other Inspector Faro tales it ends with a twist.

This is a good, light mystery, well written. I like the way the author gives background to the storyline. Would recommend it.
