An Artless Demise
Book Feature - An Artless Demise by Anna Lee Huber
HBL Note: When I first read the description of this book, I couldn’t help but think of The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson. It is the first (and most memorable) time I’d read about people stealing bodies and selling them to medical schools…or in the case of H. H. Holmes, killing people and selling their bodies to medical schools. In An Artless Demise by Anna Lee Huber, Lady Kiera Darby is about to be wrongfully accused of involvement in these criminal acts - jeopardizing her new husband and unborn child.

From the publisher:
November 1831. After fleeing London in infamy more than two years prior, Lady Kiera Darby's return to the city is anything but mundane, though not for the reasons she expected. A gang of body snatchers is arrested on suspicion of imitating the notorious misdeeds of Edinburgh criminals, Burke and Hare--killing people from the streets and selling their bodies to medical schools. Then Kiera's past--a past she thought she'd finally made peace with--rises up to haunt her.
