Publisher Description

London 1889. A dead man is found floating in the city’s waterworks. Fearing an epidemic, the Metropolitan Police call upon bacteriologist Dr Anton Kronberg to examine the body. All signs point toward cholera having killed the man…but for faint marks around wrists and ankles.

Evidence for a crime is weak, and the police lose interest in the case. But Kronberg suspects that the dead man’s final days had been steeped in cruelty. Soon, a second victim is found, and Kronberg gets embroiled in a web of abduction, abuse, and murder.

But catching a killer and staying alive would be easier if the doctor didn’t have secrets of…her own.

Warning: medical procedures are depicted without apology.

Fast-paced story...

Good read. Noticed a few discrepancies but I am a "detailed reader"-- I found inaccuracies in some of Grafton's mysteries. Captured Holmes' character well. I read all the Sherlock Holmes books starting in high school and have been a fan since. Looking forward to reading the next book.

Thumping Good Read

I loved the strong female protagonist in this novel. Anna Kronberg, who becomes the eminent bacteriologist Dr. Anton Kronberg with a change of clothes, a haircut and a prosthesis teams up with Sherlock Holmes to solve a case of germ based murder in London. This book has everything you typically find in a Holmes mystery, but it is all done from a drastically different but the same level of intellectual perspective. The difference is the emotions that Anna/Anton brings to the story. They add a new depth that make it very intriguing. There is action, suspense, murder, conspiracies,mayhem, and all the lovely logic you get with a Holmes mystery. I can't recommend it highly enough for those of you who are mystery fans. Bravo!
