A Raven and Fisher Mystery: Book 3
Edinburgh, 1850. This city will bleed you dry.
Sarah Fisher is keeping a safe distance from her old flame Dr Will Raven. Having long worked at the side of Dr James Simpson, she has set her sights on learning to practise medicine herself. A notion everyone seems intent on dissuading her from.
Across town, Raven finds himself drawn into Edinburgh's mire when a package containing human remains washes up on the shores of Leith, and an old adversary he has long detested contacts him, pleading for Raven's help to escape the hangman.
Sarah and Raven's lives seem indelibly woven together as they discover that wealth and status cannot alter a fate written in the blood.
