The Good Book Guide Review

A spine-tingling new addition to the exploits of wealthy Georgian widow Harriet Westerman and her reclusive anatomist friend Gabriel Crowther, this dark, unflinching and vivid novel delves deep into the painful history of Britain’s slave trade. When a one-time plantation owner is found dead near St Paul’s Cathedral, his former slaves are the inevitable suspects, and the involvement of her footman William Geddings brings Harriet reluctantly into the investigation. Powerful individuals stand to lose both money and reputation and will stop at nothing to conceal the truth, as Harriet and Gabriel are drawn ever deeper into a world of misery and exploitation.
