Review:

"Parry's Victorian Edinburgh comes vividly alive - and it's a world of pain" (VAL McDERMID)

"The Way of All Flesh is a treat. The historical setting is fascinating, and all of Brookmyre's wit and storytelling verve are evident in this tale of scalpels and secrets" (The Times)

"Menacing, witty and ingeniously plotted, Ambrose Parry's debut draws you into the dark heart of nineteenth-century Edinburgh and won't let you go until the final page" (S.J. PARRIS)

"A rip-roaring tale of murder amid the medical experiments of 19th-century Edinburgh. The book brings both city and period to colourful life and is a joy to read" (IAN RANKIN Guardian)

"Utterly compelling, this tale of Old Edinburgh is so full of characters and startling incident that I never wanted it to end" (DENISE MINA)

"A thoroughly entertaining tale of murder and misadventure in 1840s Edinburgh" (Sunday Times)

"A dynamic new arrival . . . Ambrose Parry's The Way of All Flesh is set in an 1840s Edinburgh where new science and old beliefs rub shoulders. Its twisty gothic plot is based on grisly real events" (NICCI FRENCH Observer)

"An astonishing debut. The dark and dangerous past is brought thrillingly to life. I can't wait to read more of Raven and Sarah" (MARK BILLINGHAM)

"The city of Burke and Hare has found a new classic murder. The Way of All Flesh is a darkly stylish mystery underpinned by hard facts and expert research. A hugely enjoyable debut" (LOUISE WELSH)

"Exceptional" (IRVINE WELSH)

Book Description:

A vivid and gripping historical crime novel set in 19th century Edinburgh, co-written by bestselling author Chris Brookmyre and consultant anaesthetist Dr Marisa Haetzman
