The Anatomist's Apprentice by Tessa Harris (audiobook)

The Anatomist's Apprentice (A Dr. Thomas Silkstone Mystery, #1) - Tessa Harris, Simon Vance

Series: Dr Thomas Silkstone Mystery #1


Very mild spoilers.



This was a fairly intricately plotted historical fiction mystery that I quite enjoyed despite the apparently mandatory love interest along with love at first sight (at least on his part). It was also refreshing because it takes place in an even earlier era for forensics, 1780. There was a tendency to throw a bit too much into the actual chase scene at the end (i.e. let's kill all the inconvenient characters) but it still left me wanting to dive into the next one sooner rather than later. All in all, a promising start to a series.
