Publisher's Summary

The next in the series of gripping historical crime novels from best-selling author Chris Brookmyre and consultant anaesthetist Dr Marisa Haetzman, set in 19th-century Edinburgh

Edinburgh, 1849. Hordes of patients are dying all across the city, with doctors finding their remedies powerless. And a whispering campaign seeks to paint Dr. James Simpson, pioneer of medical chloroform, as a murderer.   

Determined to clear Simpson’s name, his protégé Will Raven and former housemaid Sarah Fisher must plunge into Edinburgh’s deadliest streets and find out who or what is behind the deaths. Soon they discover that the cause of the deaths has evaded detection purely because it is so unthinkable.

Just want more!!

Such a brilliant series stumbled upon by accident. Narrators are great and the story offers some insight into the medical world of the time. Scary stuff!! Can't wait to read more

Loving the three narrators

This series is incredibly good! If you like history and murder mystery. It really brings Scotland to life and the medical thinking at that time, but the clever part is that each book has a murder plot unraveling and a different narrator for the two main characters and one for the murderer too!!
Excellently written and I thoroughly recommend :-)
