Paperback re-issue of a thriller set in 1880s Edinburgh. At the Fountainbridge Institute for Destitute Girls, clever orphan Evelyn Todd invents stories about the lamplighter who passes her window nightly. Her imaginings, forbidden by the home's strict governor, are all but forgotten when Evelyn is taken away by a man who claims to be her father. Years later, a series of vicious murders occur in the city. Three men from different worlds are drawn to the case: a detective hungry for recognition, a disillusioned professor of logic, and a strapping gravedigger. Their paths lead to Evelyn Todd, now a woman haunted by dreams of the murders and of a mysterious lamplighter. Author's previous works include 'Scheherazade'.
