Interesting book which is set in London in 1856 right at the embryomic stage of forensics, coupled with the mysterious arena of autopsy and the introduction of the new theory of evolution to an unwelcoming public. First there's a gruesome murder of a socialite then another seemingly unrealted killing but just as grisly as the first then another . . where Scotland Yard Inspector Adams struggles to find the reason behind each death and the key that ties them together. This was a pretty good read but a little disjointed at times although overall I enjoyed it. This is a first book of this particular author so hopefully further novels will be even better as she develops the 'new' notions of forensics, autopsies and evolution.
