Publisher Description

A young medical student named Fettes is assisting his professor in procuring cadavers to be dissected by his fellow students. He knows many of the bodies that are sold to him were stolen from graves—but he needs his job and keeps his silence.

To remain silent, however, is to invite worse trouble. Late one night there is a knock at the door and another cadaver is delivered to Fettes—one he recognizes. It’s Jane Galbraith, a woman Fettes had seen alive and well only a day before.

Suspecting Galbraith was a victim of foul play, Fettes confronts his colleague, who warns him to continue keeping silent. Once again Fettes obeys, finding himself drawn inexorably deeper and deeper into a sinister swamp of deceit, lies, and murder.

    " This was just another short story in the Dr. Jekyll book. I read it in about 1/2 an hour. It was well written and a good Halloween type ghost story. A little silly and a little creepy, but a good read. "

    " This is a wonderful shaggy-dog story. At least, I think it's shaggy-dog. Would someone please read the last sentence and tell me what you think? "

    " I read this awhile ago....apparently I've been busy....for October, thinking it would be fun to read a scary story. It was o.k. I've definitely read better short stories. The whole premise and timeline in which it took place were kind of creepy, but that's about it. "

    " The story is quite short but pretty scary. After finishing it I can honestly admit that I don't get it. Maybe I am too reasonable or lacking imagination or faith in the supernatural. "

    " Ok it was the only book I could find!! I did not enjoy this but it was a short story and it was at least tolerable enough to finish. I didn't like the ending and as it was supposed to be a horror story, I didn't find it horrific at all!! "

    " This book was about doctors who dissect humans, yet obtain the bodies from people who most often apparently murder them since the doctors pay them for the bodies. I got really confused in this book. The only spooky part was the last page, and it wasn't really that scary anyway. "

    " Not Stevenson's best, but still a collection of three short stories that are very much in his style and therefore really enjoyable. "
