Editorial Reviews


''An American physician in post-Revolutionary War England takes on a potent drug, a baffling murder and a determined rival . . . Harris successfully balances history, homicide, science, sorcery, and social justice in her idealistic hero's fourth case.'' --Kirkus

''Impossible to put down. Harris uses telling details to make readers feel part of the time. With each book, the mysteries have become stronger, and the subject of slavery in England lends a heartbreaking note to this novel. Silkstone is an admirable character and he captures readers' emotional interest.'' --RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)

''Conflicting attitudes toward slavery in Georgian England propel Harris' stellar fourth historical starring American anatomist Thomas Silkstone . . . Harris' prose and characterizations have only become more assured.'' --Publishers Weekly (starred review) --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
