More About The Resurrectionist by Matthew Guinn
 
 
 
Overview

At South Carolina Medical College, Dr. Jacob Thacker is on probation for Xanax abuse. His interim career--working university public relations--takes an unnerving detour into the past when the bones of African American slaves are unearthed on campus.

In a parallel narrative set in the nineteenth century, Nemo ("no man"), a university slave purchased for his unusual knife skills, becomes an unacknowledged member of the surgical faculty by day--and by night, a "resurrectionist," responsible for procuring bodies for medical study. An unforgettable character, by turns apparently insouciant, tormented, and brilliant, Nemo will seize his self-respect in ways no reader can anticipate.

With exceptional storytelling pacing and skill, Matthew Guinn weaves together past and present to relate a Southern Gothic tale of shocking crimes and exquisite revenge.

A 2014 Edgar Award Finalist for Best First Novel.
