The Discreet Charm Of Mary Maxwell-Hume
by Gordon Lawrie
Mary Maxwell-Hume is a nun, a piano teacher, and an enigma. She wears close-fitting dresses that reveal nothing and everything at the same time, and Chanel No.5. And she just might be slightly dubious. But Mary uses her sensuous powers to extraordinary effect in a series of tales set in Edinburgh – with the help of a young police constable, and to the discomfort of an odious auction-house owner.
