I listened to the audiobook of this novel through Overdrive. It was the first audiobook that I ever listened to and I really enjoyed it.

Book one of the Dr. Thomas Silkstone series is a strong beginning to an interesting main character. An anatomist, Dr. Silkstone, must uncover who killed Sir Edward Crick and why. Placed in the late 1800s, The Anatomist’s Apprentice created a fun and enjoyable Victorian-esque crime thriller that I enjoyed.

Tessa Harris provided so many twists and turns along the way that I never knew who was going to be accused of murder next and in the end left me completely surprised at who had killed Edward Crick.

Believeable and entertaining, I will definitely be following along with this character through the next couple books.
