Emily Noble's disgrace
Publication year: 2021
Media class: Hardback
When trauma cleaner Essie Pound makes a gruesome discovery in the derelict Edinburgh boarding house she is sent to clean, it brings her into contact with a young policewoman, Emily Noble, who has her own reasons to solve the case. As the two women embark on a journey into the heart of a forgotten family, the investigation prompts fragmented memories of their own traumatic histories - something Emily has spent a lifetime attempting to bury, and Essie a lifetime trying to lay bare.
After the apparently mandatory spoiler prologue that ruins many books if you inadvertently read them this book trundles along to no great effect for half its length. After that a story manifests to a somewhat interesting conclusion.
