Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The delightful second installment in Alexander McCall Smiths already hugely popular new detective series, The Sunday Philosophy Club, starring the irrepressibly curious Isabel Dalhousie editor of the Journal of Applied Ethics and her no-nonsense housekeeper, Grace.

When Isabels niece, Cat, asks Isabel to run her delicatessen while she attends a wedding in Italy, Isabel meets a man with a most interesting problem. He recently had a heart transplant, and is suddenly plagued with memories of events that never happened to him. The situation appeals to Isabel as a philosophical question. Is the heart truly the seat of the soul? And it piques her insatiable curiosity: could the memories be connected with the donors demise? Grace, of course, thinks it is none of Isabels business. Add to the mix the lothario Cat brings home from the wedding in Italy, who, in accordance with all that Isabel knows about lotharios, shouldnt be trusted . . . but goodness, he is charming.

That makes two mysteries of the heart to be solved just the thing for Isabel Dalhousie.
