Overview

Bestselling author Brenda Novak unearths love in the darkest of places.

When Maximillian Wilder hides his noble identity and joins the notorious body snatchers known as the London Supply Company, the last thing on his mind is love. He's worried about Madeline, his vanished half sister, who was last seen in the company of Jack Hurtsill, the gang's conscienceless leader. Raiding graveyards, stealing corpses, and selling them to medical colleges as dissection material is dirty work, but Max knows he must gain Jack's trust. He's determined to find out what happened to Madeline--and to bring Jack to justice if she was murdered for the coin her body could earn.

Beautiful, spirited Abigail Hale, daughter of the surgeon at Aldersgate School of Medicine, detests the challenging, hard-bargaining Max almost as much as Jack. But she must procure the necessary specimens if she is to save the college and her father's career. She believes she is going to be successful--until Jack double-crosses her. Then she's swept into a plot of danger and intrigue, one where Max must intervene to protect her, no matter the risk to his plan...or his heart.

Novak (the Whiskey Creek series) expertly weaves powerful characters into a complex plot set in a skillfully crafted 1830s London underworld. Nobleman Max Wilder is so determined to locate his estranged half-sister Madeline that he infiltrates a gang of body-snatching “resurrection men,” who rob London’s graves in order to supply its medical schools with fresh cadavers. Madeline’s last known association was with the gang’s leader, Big Jack Hurtsill, but no one’s seen her for months. When young Miss Abigail Hale puts herself in harm’s way as the self-appointed procurer of bodies for the Aldersgate School of Medicine, she runs afoul of Max, who tries to teach her a lesson by fleecing her of the school’s entire cash reserves. The always reliable Novak smartly combines romance and crime in this entertaining page-turner. (Oct.)
