Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, with one of the darkest histories on record. Starting with the Roman era, and sweeping through the centuries in a blood-soaked catalogue of battles, diseases, royal deaths, and disasters, this is history as you have never read it before. Read how Lord Drumlanrig once roasted a servant on a spit. Discover why Station Road used to be caled "Cut-Throat Lane." With horrible tales involving Mary, Queen of Scots, James VI and Bonnie Prince Charlie, as well as the execution of the Marquis of Montrose -- and the story of his stolen heart -- only the bravest of readers should open it. Containing riots, murders, severed heads, sieges, and the bull's head that sparked a clan massacre, read it if you dare!
