Publisher Description

The first novel in the Westerman and Crowther historical crime series that The New York Times Book Review called “CSI: Georgian England” and Tess Gerritsen called “chillingly memorable”

Debut novelist Imogen Robertson won the London Telegraph’s First Thousand Words of a Novel competition in 2007 with the opening of Instruments of Darkness. The finished work is a fast-paced historical mystery starring a pair of amateur eighteenth-century sleuths with razor-sharp minds. When Harriet Westerman, the unconventional mistress of a Sussex manor, finds a dead man on her grounds, she enlists reclusive anatomist Gabriel Crowther to help her find the murderer. Moving from drawing room to dissecting room, from dark London streets to the gentrified countryside, Instruments of Darkness is a gripping tale of the forbidding Thornleigh Hall and an unlikely forensic duo determined to uncover its deadly secrets.

Excellent Historical Whodunit

As you read this mystery, you find yourself living and feeling in the mid eighteenth century quite literally as if you were there. Very well written with lots of passion. The read literally takes you to another place and time. Very, very well done...

csi 1790

this book was great. sometimes characters are so evil you end not really invested in the outcome. this is not the case. all of the characters in the book were human, thus flawed. some more than others. but you can really get the emotions. i really hope to see more from this author.
