Description
(Winner of Good Housekeeping's 2012 Novel Competition) In 1887, young Scottish doctor James Murray comes to Turin to study with noted criminologist Cesare Lombroso, but his unconventional new mentor is soon accused of murder. In former criminal defense attorney Diana Bretherick's mystery debut, Murray joins forces with fellow apprentice, Ottolenghi; a local investigator, Tullio; and Lombroso's beautiful but enigmatic housekeeper, Sofia, in an attempt to track down a malevolent serial killer and clear the name of an innocent man.

"Vivid descriptions of late 19th-century Turin, so real the reader can almost smell and taste the city, enhance this enthralling debut crime novel."Library Journal

"Bretherick weaves together a number of strands into a complex tale that ends with a genuinely surprising revelation of the identity of the murderer. This is a historical crime novel with real originality and narrative energy."BBC History Magazine
