Description

The Anatomy of Ghosts is a gripping historical mystery from the bestselling author of The Ashes of London

1786, Jerusalem College, Cambridge.

The ghost of murdered Sylvia Whichcote is sighted prowling the grounds by commoner Frank Oldershaw. Worried her son is descending into madness, Frank's anxious mother employs rationalist John Holdsworth to investigate the sighting, throwing the uneasy status quo at the college into chaos.

For the sinister Holy Ghost Club governs the privileged life at Jerusalem. Pursued by the ghost of his dead wife, Maria, and Elinor, the very-much-alive Master's wife, Holdsworth must unravel the circumstances surrounding Sylvia's death or succumb to the hauntings himself . . .
