London, 1782. The sole survivor of an ill-fated expedition
to Jamaica has gone missing upon his return home. Dr. Thomas Silkstone had been
entrusted to catalog all the New World specimens and therefore feels compelled
to investigate the disappearance. Meanwhile, a rumor circulates that a potion with
the power to raise the dead is afoot, and the formula is thought to be in the
missing botanist’s journal.
As he investigates, the good doctor is drawn into a world of
trafficking in corpses for profit. When a headless corpse is discovered,
Silkstone uncovers the sinister motives of those who would stop at nothing to
possess the Lazarus potion.
Inspired by true-life physician Dr. William Shippen Jr.,
this delightful series has been hailed as “CSI
meets The Age of Reason” (Karen
Harper, New York Times bestselling
