In 1899 Brooklyn, Dr. Noah Whitestone is accused of prescribing a lethal dose of laudanum to an ailing five-year-old patient by the boy's powerful and politically connected regular doctor. To prove his innocence, Whitestone must investigate and face down the real killer. Along the way, he encounters a muckraking radical editor and soon gets drawn into a grim world of politics and experimental drugs.
VERDICT Goldstone follows his acclaimed debut historical mystery, The Anatomy of Deception, with another vibrant and distinctive forensic page-turner. For fans of Caleb Carr and E.S. Thompson.
