    Description"Robertson has a wicked way with suspense." --"Seattle Times" Imogen Robertson's first two historical suspense novels featuring the forthright Mrs. Harriet Westerman and reclusive anatomist Gabriel Crowther have earned both glowing praise and a growing readership. England, 1783. In "Island of Bones," Crowther's haunting past is at last revealed. For years he has pursued his forensic studies--and the occasional murder investigation--far from his family estate. But an ancient tomb there will reveal a wealth of secrets. When laborers discover an extra body inside, the lure of the mystery brings Crowther home at last. Fans of both historical fiction a la Anne Perry and the intricate forensics of Tess Gerritsen will be delighted by Robertson's latest.

    Review quote
    Praise for "Instruments of Darkness: " "A sensitive melodrama. . . . Robertson's enjoyment of the period and her characters is infectious." --"The New York Times Book Review "(Editor's Choice) "A thoroughly engaging novel, with rich prose and an intricate, suspenseful plot, with melodramatic, Gothic touches in perfect keeping with the historical period. Robertson has already written another Westerman/Crowther mystery. . . . let us hope for many more." --Associated Press "Every so often I encounter a book that makes me think with envy: 'How I wish I could have written this story!' "Instruments of Darkness "is just that book--poetic, enchanting, and chillingly memorable. Imogen Robertson is an exquisite writer, and this is an extraordinary novel." --Tess Gerritsen, author of "The Silent Girl" "Mayhem runs amok in this period thriller. [Robertson] pulls out all the stops. . . a roaring soap opera of a novel." --"The Washington Times" "Impressive . . . A ripping homage to Dickens, Austen and Conan Doyle, "Instruments of Darkness "will keep you up at night, and then, like me, waiting for the sequel." --"Seattle Times" "The book works splendidly as a period thriller, with complicated leads and informative details that illuminate 18th-century England for modern readers." --"Publishers Weekly" "This debut is getting some play and should well serve lovers of historical suspense." --"Library Journal"
