I'm really starting to enjoy historical fiction, and this one was right up my street, concentrating on the notorious Dr. Knox and his dodgy acquaintance with a couple of body snatchers in Edinburgh in the 1800s.

Morgan's writing is excellent, and the research done for this book was good. It was graphic, violent in parts, disturbing a lot of the time, and yet never loses its adolescent charm. Highly recommended.
