Summary

The dead won't bother you if you don’t give them permission.

Boston, 1844.

Tabby has a peculiar gift: She can communicate with the recently departed. It makes her special, but it also makes her dangerous. 

As an orphaned child, she fled with her sister, Alice, from their charlatan aunt Bellefonte, who wanted only to exploit Tabby's gift so she could profit from the recent craze for seances. 

Now a young woman and tragically separated from Alice, Tabby works with her adopted father, Eli, the kind caretaker of a large Boston cemetery. When a series of macabre grave robberies begins to plague the city, Tabby is ensnared in a deadly plot by the perpetrators, known only as the "Resurrection Men".

In the end, Tabby's gift will either save both her and the cemetery - or bring about her own destruction.

My favourite Hester Fox novel to date.

This is my favourite Hester Fox novel so far.

I've read and listened to all Hester's novels, great all being narrated by the wonderful Lauren Ezzo you fall straight into the work Hester creates.

Gothic, compelling and captivating. Well worth its 5 stars! Looking forward to the next one.

loved it

I have loved Hester Fox's writing voice since she released The Witch of Willow Hall. This book did not disappoint me. I loved the Boston atmosphere and the atmospheric vibes. If you like gothic novels definitely give her a try.
