Waiting on Wednesday (WOW) December 14, 2011

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This is a new historical mystery series due out December 27th, 2011.  I read about it Romantic Times and added the book to my wish list. 

The Anatomist's Apprentice (Dr. Thomas Silkstone Mysteries) by Tessa Harris

Meet Dr. Thomas Silkstone, an intriguing addition to the annals of detective fiction.

In eighteenth-century England, the murder of Sir Edward Crick sends a torrent of gossip breezing through Oxfordshire; although, aside from his sister, Lady Lydia Farrell, few mourn the young man. When Lady Farrell's husband becomes the prime suspect in the murder, she enlists the help of Dr. Thomas Silkstone--an anatomist and pioneering forensic detective--to solve the murder and prove his innocence.

Though Dr. Silkstone studied medicine in England under the foremost surgeon in the region, his unconventional methods and unfamiliar field of study have made him an outsider. Still, he agrees to examine Sir Edward's corpse, but the keenest blade he will use is his intellect. He must determi
ne both the cause and motive of this suspicious death in what will be the first of many cases.

  2. 18th century England is one of the best places to be. Especially for a mystery.
