For me this was a very strange and quite confusing world.
The main character is struggling to find a legal way to justice in a world of traditions, legal procedures, unspoken alliances and aristocrats who are above the law.
Understanding all this legal language wasn't easy for me.
On the other side there is a lot of Scottish accent. That was another challenge, but it shows the author's ability to switch voices.

I won this book in Booklover Catlady Maxine's competion. Thanks to the author and Maxine.
The setting is the same strange world of wigged judges and advocates as well as the mean streets of Glasgow and the posh estates near and about of Edinburgh. It's a world that is fun to visit, where precise court ceremonies and sharpened red pencils and inkwells and posh secret societies occupy time and space with rusting ships and disreputable bars and underground secret societies.
The source of evil here resides in similar quarters as in the first book, namely a privileged class that is able to manipulate, coordinate and corrupt the levers of power in the military, intelligence and the courts. But the thrust of this second novel is entirely different from the first and it is not a formulaic same story told twice.
Although marketed as "dark" I see these books as expressing a fundamental faith or hope that right can triumph. The thrill is in the bruising journey. I cannot wait to begin the third book, The Bones.
