Hazel Sinnett faces the seemingly insurmountable problem of being a lady who longs to be a surgeon in 17th century Edinburgh. In her struggle to improve her education, Hazel meets Jack Currer, a resurrection man who can provide her the bodies she needs for research. However, as Hazel and Jack work together, they realize that something sinister is happening among the poorer population of Scotland. Can they solve the mystery before they become victims of it themselves?
While the story of a woman hoping to excel in a masculine profession is familiar, I enjoyed the unique twist of Hazel working with a resurrection man. The characters are well developed and the audiobook is an excellent production. There is also a little fantastical twist that might draw a variety of audiences.
