Welcome to Edinburgh. It has always been a city of contrasts. The sweeping elegance of its Georgian New Town once sat cheek by jowl with the squalor of its disease-ridden Old Town. It was the cradle of Hume’s Enlightenment, yet it was also the hunting ground of the two notorious Williams, Burke and Hare. Little wonder that the city inspired R L Stevenson to pen Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.
Now Edinburgh is home to another monster. He’s a modern-day Mr Hyde, but without the alter ego of a good doctor to stem his cravings. He’s a grotesque, but he’s also extremely wealthy; wealthy enough to do what he wants when he wants and get away with it.
