Publisher Description

An American anatomist plunges into a case of sorcery, slavery, and cold-blooded murder in this historical mystery for fans of Caleb Carr.

When the sole survivor of an ill-fated scientific expedition to Jamaica goes missing upon his return to London, Dr. Thomas Silkstone—entrusted with cataloging the expedition’s New World specimens—feels compelled to investigate. There are rumors of a potion that has the power to raise the dead—and the formula is suspected to be in the private journal that has disappeared along with the young botanist.

As Dr. Silkstone searches for clues to the man’s whereabouts, he is drawn deeper into a dark and dangerous world of vengeance, infidelity, murder, and the trafficking of corpses for profit. Without the support of his beloved Lady Lydia Farrell—from whom he has been forcibly separated by law—he must confront the horrors of slavery, as well the very depths of human wickedness. And after a headless corpse is discovered, Dr. Silkstone begins to uncover the sinister motives of those in power who would stop at nothing to possess the Lazarus potion…
