Dystopian(ish) crime set in Edinburgh

  • Book: Death at the Plague Museum
  • Location: Edinburgh
  • Author: Lesley Kelly

Review Author: Cerisanne



I LOVED this book (so much that I’m rereading it while I’m visiting Edinburgh). The series is set in an alternative Edinburgh in a world that has been devastated by a viral pandemic, but there’s still a strong sense of place throughout. The characters are wonderful, and the pace offers everything you could possibly want from a crime thriller. Bring on the next book in the series!
