By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on April 10, 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
Now living in America, author David Hutchinson came to this country having been raised in Edinburgh, Scotland. An Arts graduate, he worked as a professional photographer based in Edinburgh. With his extensive background in photography, David has taught at tertiary level and lectured as a Visiting Professional. Though he has been writing short pieces for magazines (first published in the 1980s), DEACON BRODIE is his first novel - though after finishing this enormously successful work it seems as though he has been deep in his letters for years! He admits the growing up in Edinburgh, he became fascinated by the rich history of Scotland's capital, and especially with some of its leading characters, one of those (fortunately for us) was Deacon William Brodie, the subject of this novel based on fact but filigreed with delightfully Scottish brogue peppered fiction.

Because Hutchinson confines his novel to the last year of Deacon Brodie's life, a bit of background for those who are unaware of this historical character. William Brodie (1741 - 1788), more commonly known by his prestigious title of Deacon Brodie, was a Scottish cabinet-maker, deacon of a trades guild and Edinburgh city councilor, who maintained a secret life as a burglar, partly for the thrill, and partly to fund his gambling. By day, Brodie was a respectable tradesman and Deacon (president) of the Incorporation of Wrights, the head of the Craft of Cabinetmaking, which made him a member of the Town Council. Part of his job in building cabinets was to install and repair their locks and other security mechanisms and repair door locks. He socialized with the gentry of Edinburgh. At night, however, Brodie became a burglar and thief.

Great story based on factual history. Been to Deacon Brodie's Pub in Edinburgh (also on the internet) and basics are posted there, as outlined in the book. Very nice pub on the Royal Mile and neat it's named after my Black Lab Laddy (LOL) !!
