This book had me hooked after only a few pages and I could put it down till I had finished it. A fantastic insight into 1830s Boston and to Victorian Medicine. Gerritsen has pulled on her own medical knowledge fantastically to tell this tale surrounding a hospital and a group of medical students who face a race to find a serial killer terrorising the streets. This book is not typical “Rizzoli and Isles” but instead is a breath of fresh air. This book transported me back in time and the only down side was that the book had to end. I will be desperately searching for similar books set at the same time. Highly recommend.
