"Young women are being discovered dead across the Old Town, all having suffered similarly gruesome ends. In the New Town, medical student Will Raven is about to start his apprenticeship with the brilliant and renowned Dr Simpson. Simpson's patients range from the richest to the poorest of this divided city. His house is like no other, full of visiting luminaries and daring experiments in the new medical frontier of anaesthesia. It is here that Raven meets housemaid Sarah Fisher, who recognises trouble when she sees it and takes an immediate dislike to him. She has all of his intelligence but none of his privileges, in particular his medical education. With each having their own motive to look deeper into these deaths, Raven and Sarah find themselves propelled headlong into the darkest shadows of Edinburgh's underworld, where they will have to overcome their differences if they are to make it out alive."--Amazon.com.… (més)

The authors took an interesting period and local and used them with all the finesse of a ham bone. The fictional characters are not likable with better than their times internal monologues and for all Edinburgh seems fascinating outside of this story, they have managed to completely miss adding any of that to this book.

This mystery and the historical setting of 1840's London really worked well for me. The characters were idiosyncratic and well-developed, especially Will Raven and Sarah Fisher. The adventure felt very credible, the medical difficulties of difficult births amongst the poor all too real, but handled sensitively by the authors.

While it became somewhat obvious who the culprit was, the story was engrossing and the outcome absolutely fitting. I loved the twist at the end. Recommended for those who love historical fiction and can cope with the portrayal of life in the reality of the mid-19th century. ( )

Second time of reading it, for Kirkwall library book group this time. Enjoyed it and would read more by this duo

This is Victorian Nancy Drew in gruesome Edinburgh Scotland along with her sidekick, Will Raven. Raven is really the main character in this book which is easily read, a page turner in places, yet overall pretty historically accurate. Will has become an apprentice to the well-respected Dr. Simpson who delivers babies and takes care of women. The book opens with a dead prostitute who was a friend of Will's. Will borrows money to help her out of some kind of trouble before she turns up dead. The loan sharks rough Will up and he begins his apprenticeship with a horrible wound to the head. Dr. Simpson's house includes his unmarried sister-in-law, Mina, and a housemaid, Sarah Fisher who first dislikes Will, but soon they become "partners" in searching out the truth behind the deaths of several young women. Along the way, there is much about chloroform, ether, abortion, and methods of delivering babies (many of which are brutal). It is an interesting look at the time when medicine was experimental and poor patients were often the subjects.

This isn't particularly deep, the characters are not particularly well-drawn, but it still has an appeal for a summer's day read on the porch. ( )

Given the book´s setting, focus on class struggles, & the subject of women´s reproductive rights et al., I wanted it to be better than it was. It took a *long* time before the actual story kickstarted, & I was tempted to toss the book aside on several occasions. I´m glad that I kept with it although I could easily have done without the inevitable sexual chemistry bteween the 2 protagonists (the female being head & shoulders more interesting than her male counterpart). As much as I enjoyed the character of the housemaid, well read or not, she spoke like a 40-year old who was born with a silver spoon in her mouth. All in all, a good yarn. ( )
