Publisher's Summary

Julia Hamill is gardening one afternoon in rural Massachusetts when her spade strikes something soft and unyielding - not a rock but a human skull. Medical examiner Maura Isles quickly determines that the skeleton, that of a woman, dates back to the early 1800s.

"But too much time has passed," Maura warns Julia. "We may never know the whole story of how she died."

Boston in the 1830s is a place of disease and pestilence: and no one is more aware of this than Norris Marshall, a student at Harvard Medical School who is forced to support himself by performing the most secretive job of all. Norris is a resurrectionist, a body-snatcher, who procures cadavers from grave robbers in order to further his study of human anatomy. Soon he finds himself hunting the most notorious killer of his time, a shadowy figure who flits through graveyards and glittering ballrooms. What he does not realize is that the killer is far closer than he thinks.

    "Interlocking stories across time"

    This is one of those books that flips backwards and forwards across a century gradually drawing together threads of the parallel stories. Sometimes this shifting back and forth in time can be confusing in an audio book, but not in this one. Even though I was doing other things at the same time as listening I was able to follow the exciting story that kept me listening non-stop to the end. It's a fairly short recording but the story is succintly crafted and narrated by Laurel Lefkow?a reader I haven't heard before, but she's excellent and brought the characters to life by giving each a distinctive voice. She reminded me of Lorelei King.
