Bodies that wonâ€™t stay buriedâ€”is it a practical joke? Or
Lord Fitzroy-Hammond of Resurrection Row has been dead and
buried three weeks when he turns up sitting atop a hansom
cab. Grave robbing, though a crime, isnâ€™t Inspector Thomas
Pittâ€™s usual fare. But when the macabre joke is repeated,
and the manâ€™s corpse is found sitting in the family pew the
Sunday following his second interment, Pitt begins to wonder
if perhaps thereâ€™s some message in it. The case grows
increasingly bizarre as other disinterred bodies appear.
A new mother, Charlotte Pitt only takes a cursory interest
in the grave robbing case until she hears Thomas mention the
name of her late sisterâ€™s husband, Dominic Corde, as a
possible suspect. As Pitt follows leads into the slums and
rookeries, Charlotte, too, is drawn into the politics and
horrors of greed and exploitation.
For Pitt and Charlotte, what begins as a mysterious case of
musical corpses, becomes a deadly pursuit through the London
underworld of pornographic photographers, brothels, and
