ABOUT THE BOOK
How far would you go to save someone you love? That is the question facing two men – one a doctor, the other a grave robber – as their lives collide against the backdrop of 19th century London.
Welcome to London in 1820. The study of human anatomy, a field once plagued by superstitions, is on the cusp of a new frontier of scientific discovery, with physicians going to extreme lengths to get their hands on cadavers – including joining forces with an unsavory line of grave-robbing criminals called resurrectionists.
Job Mowatt is one such resurrectionist, skulking through cemeteries in the dead of night, avoiding armed watchmen and other, less savory grave-robbers. It’s dangerous, thankless work, but Job carries the burden gladly. The wages he earns makes it possible for him to care for his daughter Ivy.
It’s for Ivy that Job, on behalf of anatomist Percival Quinn, accepts his most perilous retrieval yet – the dead, pregnant wife of a powerful and dangerous man. One night of work will allow Job to provide Ivy with a better future, one beyond the worst slum in London. But a high reward demands a high price, and this fateful night brings Job closer to death than he has ever been. As The Resurrectionist reveals, whether London’s most wealthy or most impoverished, there are some secrets better left buried with the dead.
