Product description

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 colorful life and is a joy to read" Guardian

"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" 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

"Exceptional" IRVINE WELSH
