Scotland, 1850. The penalty for murder is death by hanging. Why then employ a young

defence lawyer with no trial experience who is surely destined to fail? And why does his

client refuse to tell him what happened on the night the crime took place? “Edward Kane

and the Parlour Maid Murderer” follows the young Advocate, Edward Kane, and his

manservant, Mr Horse from the great houses of Edinburgh to the taverns and alleyways of

the Old Town in search of answers - and defence. Written by Ross Macfarlane QC (“Noted

legal expert” - Legal 500), the novel evokes the sights and sounds of Victorian Scotland,

introducing a rich cast of characters.
