    *Starred Review* The fourth in de Muriel's series starring two late-Victorian Edinburgh detectives who are regularly assigned to bizarre paranormal mysteries is as eerie and immersive as the preceding three. The narrator, Inspector Ian Frey, a London detective unhappily transplanted to Edinburgh, is second-in-command to the eccentric "Nine-Nails" McGray in a sub-sub-department devoted to solving "odd and ghostly" crimes. This series wouldn't work if it weren't for the often-humorous tension between Frey's skepticism about the supernatural and McGray's fervent belief; this device links Frey to contemporary readers and provides neat twists when the pair are plunged into situations that can't be explained, sort of like movies about Abbott and Costello in haunted castles. McGray's intense backstory—his sister, now confined to an insane asylum, murdered their parents more than a decade ago—continues to haunt him, and it resurfaces in the pair's latest case when a woman, who claims that her illegitimate son has received a death threat, tells McGray where to obtain waters that will cure his sister. The case and the dream of a cure take Frey and McGray to the Highlands, to an estate where bats seem to be everywhere, a murder is committed, and suspicions of vampirism abound. A fine addition to this outstanding historical-mystery series. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
