The Dead Shall Not Rest
fullDescription

The brilliant anatomist Dr. Thomas Silkstone returns in the second installment of Tessa Harris' vivid and compelling mystery series set in 1780s London.

It is not just the living who are prey to London's criminals and cutpurses. Corpses, too, are fair game—dug up from fresh graves and sold to unscrupulous men of science. Dr. Thomas Silkstone abhors such methods, but his leading rival, Dr. John Hunter, has learned of the imminent death of eight-foot-tall Charles Byrne—known as the "Irish Giant"—and will go to any lengths to obtain the body for his research.

Thomas intends to see that Byrne is allowed to rest in peace, but his efforts are complicated when his betrothed, Lady Lydia Farrell, breaks off their engagement without explanation. When Dr. Hunter is implicated in the horrific murder of a young castrato, Thomas must determine how far the increasingly erratic surgeon will go in the name of knowledge. For as Thomas knows too well, the blackest hearts sometimes go undetected—and even an unblemished façade can hide terrifying secrets.

        Starred review from November 12, 2012
        Body snatchers plague 1782 London in Harris’s outstanding sequel to 2012’s The Anatomist’s Apprentice. In particular, unscrupulous anatomists covet the body of Charles Byrne, the celebrated eight-foot-tall “Irish Giant,” who is appearing at the annual spring fair near the home of Dr. Thomas Silkstone’s love interest, Lady Lydia Farrell, in Oxfordshire. When Lady Lydia prevails on Silkstone to examine Byrne, the physician concludes that “our giant may not be long for this world.” Meanwhile in London, Silkstone comes to believe that an innocent man is being railroaded for the suffocation murder of Signor Cappelli, a castrato whose larynx was surgically removed postmortem. Well-rounded characters, cleverly concealed evidence, and an assured prose style point to a long run for this historical series. Spoiler alert: the introductory author’s note gives more of a sense of plot developments than some readers will want. Agent: Melissa Jeglinski, the Knight Agency.
