Publisher's Summary

A vivid and gripping historical crime novel set in 19th-century Edinburgh, cowritten by best-selling author Chris Brookmyre and consultant anaesthetist Dr. Marisa Haetzman

Edinburgh, 1847. Will Raven is a medical student, apprenticing for the brilliant and renowned Dr Simpson. Sarah Fisher is Simpson’s housemaid and has all of Raven’s intelligence, but none of his privileges. As bodies begin to appear across the Old Town, Raven and Sarah find themselves propelled headlong into the darkest shadows of Edinburgh’s underworld. And if either of them are to make it out alive, they will have to work together to find out who’s responsible for the gruesome deaths.

Great storytelling!

This story was a bit slow in starting but I ended up thinking it was one of the best books I’ve ever ‘read’. Main characters are relatable and smart, and come up with a genius solution to a unique problem. An 1847 problem but re-emerging now, 175 years later. I will be recommending this book.

Very enjoyable

This is the first time that I’ve listened to a book with both a male narrator and a female one. It worked really well!! And not narrators were very good! - the book and plot were interesting too and I would definitely recommend :-)

Slow start but persevere

A slow start, but I’m glad I stuck with it. A different tale for me, but intriguing, atmospheric and characterful. Excellent narration from both readers. I look forward to continuing with this series.

Loved it!

Excellent story - I did guess bits of it, but that in no way affected my enjoyment of it. Strong characters and excellent narration, even if the female voice was a little nasal. Thoroughly recommend and immediately looking to see if there are more!
