When Isabel Dalhousie and her husband Jamie book a table at an expensive restaurant, she finds herself tussling with her conscience, in this 13th inquiry in Alexander McCall Smith's quietly philosophical series. There has been a lull of late at Isabel's journal, the Review of Applied Ethics, while the care of their young sons Charlie and Magnus is often left to their housekeeper Grace. Is Isabel even deserving of such a fine dinner? But after she intercedes in an argument between two fellow diners, a third patron decides she's just the person to fairly execute his will. Plus her niece Cat is mired in another troubling romantic situation—is it all more than one flawed philosopher can handle?
