About the Book
'The dead can’t speak to us,’ Professor Madoc had said.

Because the body Patrick Fort is examining in anatomy class is trying to tell him all kinds of things.
Patrick has been on the outside all his life. Thoughtful, but different, infuriating even to his own mother, his life changes when he follows an obsession with death to study anatomy at university. Upon uncovering a crime that everybody else was too close to see, he must stay out of danger long enough to unravel the mystery.
But as Patrick learns one truth from a dead man, he discovers there have been many other lies rather closer to home...
