As doctors race to invent more powerful anesthetics in the higher society of 1847 Edinburgh, an unsettling pattern of dead women surfaces in the city’s underbelly. Will Raven, an enigmatic new assistant to one of the city’s most prestigious doctors, and Sarah Fisher, the doctor’s astute housemaid, strike up an unlikely partnership to discover who is targeting the city’s most vulnerable women. The Way of All Flesh is a gritty and addicting read that will satisfy both mystery readers and lovers of historical fiction.

Description


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.
