Fiona (Titch) Hunt (titch) This book is set in Philadelphia, in the year 1889. In the morgue of the city hospital, physicians uncover the corpse of a beautiful young woman. What they see takes their breath away. Within days, one of the surgeons, Ephraim Carroll, strongly suspects that he knows the woman's identity. His investigations take him from the bloody and brutal medical world in which he practices and into the drawing rooms of Philadelphia's high society where he soon learns that nothing - and no one - is what they seem. Plunged into a maze of deception and deadly secrets, Carroll is forced to choose between exposing a killer, undoing a terrible wrong, and, quite possibly, protecting the future of medicine itself. Set in a world in which pregnancy could result in agonising death, and doctors killed more patients than they cured, "The Anatomy of Deception" is an intriguing and richly atmospheric blend of history, early forensic science and knife-edge suspense.

Fiona, I am not sure why this was posted.
Are you asking for a recommendation about the book?

As far as I can tell, its only a blurb about the book.

Maybe it would catch more peoples attention if you preface the blurb saying why you were posting it.

There is a thread somewhere on here (Fun and games maybe) that is specifically for recommending books to other members.

This thread is more for people to ASK for recommendations based on their tastes.
