Review

'A deeply pleasurable read with writing as elegant as the splendid Edinburgh architecture that forms the backdrop to Quire's grim discoveries'(THE SUN )

'Ruckley ventures successfully into the gothic with this horrific thriller . . . atmospheric descriptions help sustain the menacing mood' (PUBLISHERS WEEKLY )

'This frightening tale of taking scientific enlightenment much too far is enhanced by strong, sharp prose and a lively pace, making it difficult to stop turning the pages.' (RT BOOK REVIEWS )

'This title demonstrates not only a huge talent but one that really will grip the reader in its vice like hands as much from the first page as its last. Wonderfully descriptive, beautifully created and of course with a cracking set of verbal architecture from which to base a series, it's definitely one that I'll eagerly await future instalments from.' (Falcata Times )


'Fascinating. The author is a master at creating dread, and manages to ratchet up the tension with a sure hand. If you enjoy your historicals with plenty of suspense and a liberal dose of the supernatural, you'll surely enjoy The Edinburgh Dead!' --(My Bookish Ways)
