Description

"CSI meets the Age of Reason with a
well-drawn, intriguing cast of characters" (Karen Harper) in Tessa Harris'
superbly plotted historical mystery series, featuring eighteenth-century
anatomist and pioneering sleuth Dr. Thomas Silkstone.

In the notorious mental hospital known as Bedlam, Dr. Thomas Silkstone
seeks out a patient with whom he is on intimate terms. But he is unprepared for
the state in which he finds Lady Lydia Farrell. Shocked into action, Thomas
vows to help free Lydia by appealing to the custodian of her affairs, Mr.
Nicholas Lupton.

But when Silkstone arrives at the Boughton Estate to speak to Lupton, he
finds that sweeping changes threaten to leave many villagers destitute. After a
man dies in the woods, it appears that someone has turned to murder to avenge
their cause. But for Thomas, a postmortem raises more questions than answers,
and a second murder warns him of his potentially fatal situation. Soon he
discovers a conspiracy far more sinister than anything he has ever faced.

        December 8, 2014
        More romantic thriller than whodunit, Harris’s fifth Thomas Silkstone novel set in late 18th-century England focuses on Silkstone’s efforts to reunite with his love, Lady Lydia Farrell. At the end of 2014’s The Lazarus Curse, Lydia was confined to London’s Bethlem Hospital through the machinations of her late brother’s guardian, Sir Montagu Malthus, and a crooked physician. Almost two months later, Silkstone is still unable to see her on his visits to the facility, and is later barred from the premises. By portraying Malthus as a clichéd villain, without any nuance or depth, Harris renders the confrontations between him and Silkstone superficial and unengaging. While Silkstone has the fatal shooting of surveyor Jeffrey Turgoose to solve, the relegation of the mystery to the background and an unsatisfying ending serve to make this the weakest entry in an otherwise strong series. Agent: Melissa Jeglinski, Knight Agency.
