The latest novel in Alexander McCall Smith's much-loved Isabel Dalhousie series.

Recently distracted by the arrival of her and Jamie’s second son, Magnus, Isabel Dalhousie – philanthropic editor of the Review of Applied Ethics – is anxious. The next issue of the Review is far from ready, her eldest, Charlie, is jealous, and their housekeeper, Grace, has an officious approach to childcare. With some relief, Isabel returns to helping out at her niece Cat’s delicatessen, where surely the most taxing duty is the preparation of sandwiches.

It’s not long before Isabel’s helpful, philosophical nature draws her into customers’ problems, specifically that of ambitious, self-proclaimed matchmaker, Bea Shandon. Bea has staged a potentially dangerous liaison involving enigmatic plastic surgeon, Tony MacUspaig, who may not be quite who he claims to be – and Isabel’s help is required in getting to the truth of the matter.

When the truth finally reveals itself, Isabel must conclude that along with MacUspaig, Bea, Jamie – and even Cat – she herself is not immune to misunderstandings, or the neurotic fantasies that arise from keeping secrets ...

Industry Reviews

'Alexander McCall Smith novels never fail to delight ...' -- The Guardian
'To say McCall Smith is a literary phenomenon doesn't quite describe what has happened. He has become more of a movement ... [His books] make a splash of colour in a drab world and provide a genial buffer against the disappointments of life.' -- The Telegraph

About the Author


Alexander McCall Smith is one of the world’s most prolific and most popular authors. His career has been a varied one: for many years he was a professor of Medical Law and worked in universities in the United Kingdom and abroad. Then, after the publication of his highly successful No 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series, which has sold over twenty million copies, he devoted his time to the writing of fiction and has seen his various series of books translated into over forty languages and become bestsellers through the world.

The series include the Scotland Street novels, first published as a serial novel in The Scotsman, the Sunday Philosophy Club series starring Isabel Dalhousie, the von Igelfeld series, and the new Corduroy Mansions novels.

Alexander is also the author of collections of short stories, academic works, and over thirty books for children. He has received numerous awards for his writing, including the British Book Awards Author of the Year Award in 2004 and a CBE for service to literature in 2007. He holds honorary doctorates from nine universities in Europe and North America.

Alexander McCall Smith lives in Edinburgh. He is married to a doctor and has two daughters.
