About this title

Synopsis:

In a city still recovering from the ravages of plague and fire, two doctors crisscross the boundaries of morality. It is a challenge that leads Sir Edmund Calcraft, an eminent and notorious anatomist, and Joseph Bendix, his ambitious young student, into playing a dark game with the growing criminal underworld. At the heart of the book lies a haunting love story that both drives and threatens to destroy their quest.

In gallows and madhouses, in anatomical laboratories and a “Frost Fair” set on the frozen Thames, the two men engage in a competition involving both head and heart. Mixing history, myth, medicine, and fiction, The House of Sight and Shadow is a compelling tale about the fallibility of both love and reason.

About the Author:

Nicholas Griffin grew up in England and New York and wrote his first novel, The Requiem Shark, after genealogical research turned up a pirate in his family tree. He is at work on a third novel, also set in the eighteenth century, about a group of troublesome young Englishmen on a grand tour of Italy.
