Ghostalker Ropa Moyo and her rag-tag team of magicians are back in The Mystery at Dunvegan Castle, the third book in the spellbinding USA Today bestselling Edinburgh Nights series by T. L. Huchu.
She came for magic. She stayed to solve a murder . . .
Ropa Moyo is no stranger to magic or mysteries. But she’s still stuck in an irksomely unpaid internship. So she’s thrilled to attend a magical convention at Dunvegan Castle, on the Isle of Skye, where she’ll rub elbows with eminent magicians.
For Ropa, it’s the perfect opportunity to finally prove her worth. Then a librarian is murdered and a precious scroll stolen. Suddenly, every magician is a suspect, and Ropa and her allies investigate. Trapped in a castle, with suspicions mounting, Ropa must contend with corruption, skulduggery and power plays. Time to ask for a raise?

Ropa Moyo, an unpaid intern with Scotland's premier magical professional organization, is tasked with helping to put together a conference at Dunvegan castle in Huchu's entertaining third Edinburgh Nights urban fantasy (after Our Lady of Mysterious Ailments). The conference's attendees and presenters come from far and wide, including two delegates from Ethiopia, who bring a scroll of teachings highly important to their country to exchange for a Scottish book as a symbol of trust between their nations. When a conference-goer turns up murdered and the scroll is stolen, it's up to Ropa to solve the mystery. With the fate of national alliances and the dislike of the privileged members of the magical aristocracy weighing on her, Ropa must navigate big personalities and complex politics if she hopes to deliver justice. Ropa's investigation is thrilling, but Huchu's real skill lies in crafting a magical contemporary world that feels familiar yet filled with its own secrets, replete with analogous political situations and pop culture references that never feel out of place. This is good fun.
