"Robertson has a wicked way with suspense." --"Seattle Times" Imogen Robertson's first two historical suspense novels featuring the forthright Mrs. Harriet Westerman and reclusive anatomist Gabriel Crowther have earned both glowing praise and a growing readership. England, 1783. In Island of Bones, Crowther's haunting past is at last revealed. For years he has pursued his forensic studies--and the occasional murder investigation--far from his family estate. But an ancient tomb there will reveal a wealth of secrets. When laborers discover an extra body inside, the lure of the mystery brings Crowther home at last. Fans of both historical fiction a la Anne Perry and the intricate forensics of Tess Gerritsen will be delighted by Robertson's latest.
