Product 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 "Anatomy of Murder" "Memorable prose, strong and unusual leads, a sophisticated plot with several unexpected turns, and an accurate portrayal of the period all make this a winner." --"Publishers Weekly" (starred review) "Robertson's language is spry . . . her scene-setting broad and detailed, her prose gracefully pressed into the service of a serpentine plot." --"Financial Times" (UK) "In the overcrowded field of historical fiction, Robertson has the smarts comfortably to outpace most of her rivals." --"The Independent" (UK)
