The Art of Dying
The Art of Dying | Ambrose Parry
7 posts | 2 read | 11 to read
Edinburgh, 1850. Despite being at the forefront of modern medicine, hordes of patients are dying all across the city, with doctors finding their remedies powerless. But it is not just the deaths that dismay the esteemed Dr James Simpson - a whispering campaign seeks to blame him for the death of a patient in suspicious circumstances. Simpson's protg Will Raven and former housemaid Sarah Fisher are determined to clear their patron's name. But with Raven battling against the dark side of his own nature, and Sarah endeavouring to expand her own medical knowledge beyond what society deems acceptable for a woman, the pair struggle to understand the cause of the deaths. Will and Sarah must unite and plunge into Edinburgh's deadliest streets to clear Simpson's name. But soon they discover that the true cause of these deaths has evaded suspicion purely because it is so unthinkable.

Amazing book! Raven and Sarah are back to solve another case amidst the gore of 19c Scottish medicine. And the muck of 1850s Edinburgh, awash with poverty, disease and hypocrisy. I love toothat the authors thank the map digitisation projects at the National Library of Scotland.

Book 2 in the series. It was a really good read with lots of drama and mystery but for me the ending let it down. Without giving too many spoilers it left things a little too open for me. I wanted more from it. That being said I'm hoping theres a possible third book coming. The plot itself was clever and built well. I enjoyed the mystery and the depth it goes into about a womens place in these times. #Netgalley #SummersEndReadathon

Well my final total for #24B4Monday is above. It's the closest I've ever got to 24 hours so I'm really proud. My goal for #SummersEndReadathon was 24 which I'll easily hit so just gonna see how many hours I can get in that time instead.

Two days in and not at double figures yet. Turns out this weekend has been busier than I thought. I'll hit 24 but probably not in time for #24B4Monday more likely to be towards the end of #SummersEndReadathon.
