Summary
A theatre company arrives in Leith to perform King Lear. A robbery is planned, a gruesome murder committed, both of which set Inspector James McLevy on the prowl, and Jean's past returns in the shape of the avenging son of a man she has long ago been accused of poisoning. Even more lethally, her own lost family life resurrects in the present as a wild young actress who trails violence and death behind her involves Jean in a dangerous, complex game that gnaws at the very root of her identity. All this is grounded in Leith's gritty backdrop - the rich, exotic world of the theatre meeting the harsh reality of the streets. Past, present and future - this unholy trinity collide to overwhelm the world of Jean Brash and involve her in a tale where the abandoned child inside her demands the right to grieve as well as feel some fractured, fleeting joy. By the end a chapter of Jean's life may close, and a new future might be signalled in other lands and other countries...
