In the tradition of atmospheric Victorian noir novels comes
a stunning debut mystery rich in period detail and sinister
London in 1856 is gripped by a frightening obsession. The
specimen collecting craze is growing, and discoveries in far
off jungles are reshaping the known world in terrible and
unimaginable ways. The new theories of evolution threaten to
disrupt the fragile balance of power that keeps the
sprawling city in chaotic order—a disruption that many would
do just about anything to prevent.
When the glamorous Lady Bessingham is found murdered in her
bedroom, surrounded by her vast collection of fossils and
tribal masks, Adolphus Hatton and his morgue assistant
Albert Roumande are called in to examine the crime scene—and
the body. In the new and suspicious world of forensics and
autopsy examinations, Hatton and Roumande are the best. But
the crime scene is not confined to one room. In their
efforts to help the infamous Inspector Adams track down the
Lady’s killer, Hatton and Roumonde uncover a trail of
murders all connected to a packet of seditious letters that,
if published, would change the face of society and religion
