‘The stories all have McCall Smith’s characteristic charm, and make for easy and very pleasant reading . . . as in all McCall Smith’s work, we are reminded that the necessary quality in social life is kindness.’ The Scotsman

The characters in this delicious book by Alexander McCall Smith are pushed to the point of no return and seek retribution. The four tales that make up The Exquisite Art of Getting Even explore how the exquisite art of getting even is a skill that sees kindness win over malice. From an incomer ruffling the feathers of locals on the Isle of Mull to opposing neighbours in suburban Edinburgh, these tantalizing and amusing stories show a darker side to Alexander McCall Smith’s trademark warmth and humour.
