Dismissed by Mr. Poll, Gabriel descends into the violence and corruption of London's underworld, a place where everything and everyone is for sale, and where - as Gabriel discovers - the taking of a life is easier than it might seem.
This was chosen by my book reading group , and was not a book I would have normally have picked. I found it hard going in parts and confusing trying to remember the characters. But midway through I started to get into the story and grasped what was happening. I'm glad I finished the book but now looking for a more uplifting read! It's a dark book which goes in detailed descriptions about body snatching, dissection, and death so if you're squeamish this might not be for you. But for something a little different then I'd say give it a go.

I started but I didn't finish. I found the book uninteresting in the extreme. I expected a book about the famous "Resurrectionists" of the 19th Century but if they were there they were too far into the book for me to get to. Accordingly I switched off the iPod and changed to another book.
