The case is unexceptional, that is what I know. A house full of stuff left behind by a dead woman, abandoned at the last . .
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. Emily Nobles Disgrace is the third novel from Mary Paulson-Ellis, the bestselling author of The Other Mrs Walker, a Waterstones Scottish Book of the Year.
