Staff Picks

With Staff Picks, we would like to offer recommendations from our staff to you. These picks will be from a variety of reading, listening or viewing tastes. You might find stuff you've checked out before, or you might be intrigued enough to find a new favorite. Let's start the New Year with a mystery series that might be new to you!

The Anatomist's Apprentice by Tessa Harris

Author Tessa Harris introduces the Dr. Thomas Silkstone Mystery series with The Anatomist's Apprentice.

Dr. Silkstone, a colonist residing in England during the late 18th century, leads a happy and fulfilling life furthering the study of human anatomy and teaching the would-be surgeons of London. His life becomes filled with intrigue, danger, and love when he is called upon to determine the cause of death of the late Lord Crick.

In a case full of deception and ulterior motives, Dr. Silkstone relies upon luck, his knowledge, and the burgeoning field of forensics to see through the smoke screens. Once Lord Crick's untimely demise is solved, what mysteries next await Dr. Silkstone?
