Judges’ Comments
Edinburgh 1853, a city of medical science.  The memory of Burke and Hare still haunts the city and people have a new fascination, spiritualism.  Cleverly plotted with a strong feel for time and place, exploring issues still relevant around ethics of medical science, misogyny. All wrapped in a pacy crime thriller.
