To Keep Him Honest

Four-part series of stories about David Ashton's Victorian detective based on real-life Edinburgh policeman Inspector James McLevy.

The crowds are making for Leith Links, where the champion boxer Toff Richmond is taking on a local challenger. The purse is generous, the gamblers are plunging deep, the stall-holders are doing a roaring trade. Unfortunately, so is the criminal fraternity.
