Synopsis

A dead opera star, a brilliant anatomy professor with Sherlockian powers of deduction and a moody Victorian backdrop - it all adds up to a thrillingly entertaining historical mystery. The year is 1879 and Alan Lambert has been tried, convicted and sentenced to hang for the murder of a dazzling opera star and her lover. But Lambert's brother believes in his innocence and pleads with Dr. Bell, a celebrated professor of anatomy, to uncover the truth. Dr. Bell agrees and sets out to crack the case, with his keen powers of deduction and the help of his young student, Arthur Conan Doyle. The exuberant plot of Mr. Doyle and Dr. Bell carries readers across the roof tops of Edinburgh and descends into the thickets of municipal corruption. Fans of Sherlock Holmes will immediately recognize Holmes in Dr. Joseph Bell, who in real life was Conan Doyle's model for his famous sleuth.
