Description
A grisly murder among the German aristocracy propels this tale of eighteenth century forensics and historical crime solving
The forthright Mrs. Harriet Westerman and her reclusive companion, anatomist Gabriel Crowther, tackle their first case outside of England in the fourth installment of Imogen Robertson's heralded historical suspense series.
As Germany's elite are celebrating Shrove Tuesday of 1784 with a masked ball, the beautiful Lady Martesen is murdered. Daniel Clode, brother-in-law to Mrs. Westerman, is found near the body. All evidence points to him as the killer. As Daniel awaits execution, Westerman and Crowther arrive and quickly encounter a court full of opulence, intrigue, and deadly secrets--but no one who will talk.
With Anne Perry's eye for period detail and Tess Gerritsen's forensics knowledge, Robertson is emerging as a major author of highbrow suspense.
