“From dissection table to drawing room, this visit to late eighteenth-century England is chock full of intriguing twists and turns.”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
This is the first book I have read of Tessa Harris. It’s a mystery loosely based on history. A specific murder trial in 1781 where the first case of an expert witness was called to testify.
The investigator is not in the police force, not in Scotland yard or even a private investigator. He is Thomas Silkstone an American living in England and his an anatomist.
The time period is not long after the American Revolution, and people have mixed feelings about Americans as only one could imagine.
