Set of 2 Dr. Thomas Silkstone Mysteries

Join Dr. Thomas Silkstone, a young American anatomist-in-training, casting a forensic eye over 18th century crime. The Anatomist’s Apprentice: Studying with England’s foremost surgeon, Dr. Carruthers, Silkstone finds himself examining the body of the dissolute Lord Edward Crick, whose death has unleashed a torrent of gossip through the taverns and ballrooms of Oxfordshire. Called to the aid of the deceased’s sister, the beautiful Lady Lydia Farrell, Silkstone applies his forensic mind to the body and the strange behaviour of the Crick household. Silkstone soon learns that it is not only the dead but also the living to whom he must apply the keen blade of his intellect. And the deeper the doctor's investigations go, the greater the risk that he will be consigned to the ranks of the corpses he studies. The Dead Shall Not Rest: How far would the unscrupulous Dr. John Hunter go in ‘sourcing’ corpses for the dissection table and in pursuit of science? Obsessed with obtaining the body of Charles Byrne, known as the ‘Irish Giant’, Hunter is then implicated in the murder of a castrato; it is left to Silkstone to unravel the mystery and find if it is his erratic surgical rival who is the killer.
