The Sunday Philosophy Club: An Isabel Dalhousie Mystery Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Isabel Dalhousie is a philosopher by training, and an amateur sleuth by choice. When a young man falls from a balcony to his death, Isabel's curiosity is aroused. She does not believe the fall was an accident, and she is determined to root out the truth. With a little help from some friends (her housekeeper, her niece, and her niece's rather attractive ex-boyfriend), Isabel plunges into the shady business community of Edinburgh to find some answers.
With its distinctive characters and captivating suspense, The Sunday Philosophy Club further cements McCall Smith's status as one of today's most imaginative and enjoyable authors.

The most wonderful aspect of all is that Alexander McCall Smith is able to imbue a world so different from that of Mma. Romatswe with the same abundance of warmth, humanity, wisdom and wit as he does hers. He makes Scotland just as vivid as Botswana, and conveys the same great affection for the place and its people. The writing of Mr. McCall Smith is uplifting in its eloquence and grace, and for me that is a gift to be treasured.
I bought 3 of these "Isabel" stories at low prices, excited that I had found buried treasure...and STRUGGLED thru the first book, forced myself to do the second book and now Im not going to do the third. I'll be donating them to the library.
This author just doesn't do it for me.

The Isabel Dalhousie series is of course very different as it’s based in Edinburgh. Isabel is a delightfully written character who is a philosopher and so each of these stories include fantastic philosophical narratives as Isabel struggles with each of her choices.
However Isabel can’t help herself when it comes to helping others even if it puts herself in internal dilemmas. Her wistful crush on her nieces ex-boyfriend is certainly a dilemma she is trying not to think about as she navigates the potential existential quandaries this would cause to those around her.
If you love philosophy or indeed like to understand more about this then you will love this series. Alexander McColl Smith is a master of complex stories and I adore this series!!
