|Ian Rankin's period detective story follows the adventures of the roguish Mr Cullender in 1790s Edinburgh.|
As the press gang roam the streets looking for likely lads to fight Napoleon, and while the town guard find themselves baffled by a spate of wine-cellar murders, Cully gallantly rushes to the assistance of a young lady in distress.
With Alexander Morton as Cully, and Mary Seager, Douglas Russell, Cara Kelly, John Buick and Monica Gibb.
Director Patrick Rayner.
