Instruments of Darkness by Imogen Robertson

This is for anyone who's a fan of historical mysteries, including the wonderful Mistress of the Art of Death. It takes place in 1780 England, and someone is killing the folks of a small village who all have a secret to keep. Harriet, the wife of a sea captain, and Crowther, a mysterious gentleman who has studied human anatomy and medicine, meet and work together to solve the murders and their connection to the Thornleigh family, who's estate oozes evil and darkness. A great read, a clever story, and attention to detail that will keep you on the edge of your seat! It will be published in February of 2011. Ooh, if only they had the forensic knowledge we have today!

  2. yep, I have the next one in the series but I haven't read it yet!
