"Set in a crumbling 1850s London infirmary, a richly atmospheric Victorian crime novel where murder is the price to be paid for secrets kept"-- Provided by publisher.
1880s London. As St. Saviour's Infirmary awaits demolition, the doctors bicker and backstab. When six tiny coffins are uncovered, inside each a handful of dried flowers and a bundle of moldering rags, it opens a long-forgotten past that will have fatal consequences. Everyone at the Infirmary has secrets to hide, and when apothecary Jem Flockhart joins with junior architect Will Quartermain to understand the meaning of the coffins, they will be forced to make impossible choices.

Plans to tear down a hospital and empty a centuries-old graveyard in 19th century London reveal 6 tiny coffins filled with wooden dolls and dried flowers. What is behind this mystery turns into a deadly chase across a London that's never been dirtier. If gangrene, exhumed bodies and other putrid details turn your stomach, skip this one.
