'Dana Schwartz is one of the brightest of the next generation of young writers' NEIL GAIMAN

Edinburgh, 1817.

Hazel Sinnett
is a lady who wants to be a surgeon more than she wants to marry.

Jack Currer is a resurrection man who's just trying to survive in a city where it's too easy to die.

When the two of them have a chance encounter outside the Edinburgh Anatomist's Society, Hazel thinks nothing of it at first. But after she gets kicked out of renowned surgeon Dr. Beecham's lectures for being the wrong gender, she realizes that her new acquaintance might be more helpful than she first thought. Because Hazel has made a deal with Dr. Beecham: if she can pass the medical examination on her own, Beecham will allow her to continue her medical career. Without official lessons, though, Hazel will need more than just her books - she'll need corpses to study.
Lucky that she's made the acquaintance of someone who digs them up for a living.

But Jack has his own problems: strange men have been seen skulking around cemeteries, his friends are disappearing off the streets, and the dreaded Roman Fever, which wiped out thousands a few years ago, is back with a vengeance. Nobody important cares - until Hazel.

Now, Hazel and Jack must work together to uncover the secrets buried not just in unmarked graves, but in the very heart of Edinburgh society.

Praise for Anatomy:

'Lionhearted heroine you'll root for from page one? Check. Dark academia vibes? Check. Cheeky romantic banter that will make you blush? Check, check and CHECK. Read this gripping, ridiculously clever tale only if you're fully prepared to be haunted by its revelations about life and death while also swooning at the idea of flirting with someone in an open grave' Emma Lord, New York Times bestselling author of You Have a Match and Tweet Cute

'A fast-paced, utterly engrossing tale of mystery, romance, and cadavers...I grinned, I gasped, I cried and ended this book breathless and craving more' Alwyn Hamilton, New York Times bestselling author of the Rebel of the Sands series

'Diabolically delightful. A love story, a murder mystery, and a horror novel bound up together in ghoulish stitches' Maureen Johnson, New York Times bestselling author of the Truly Devious trilogy

'Schwartz's magical novel is at once gripping and tender, and the intricate plot is engrossing as the reader tries to solve the mystery' Booklist (starred review)

Edinburgh, 1817: a gothic tale full of mystery and romance . . .

Hazel Sinnett
is a lady who wants to be a surgeon more than she wants to marry.
Jack Currer is a resurrection man who's trying to survive in a city where it's far too easy to die.
When the two of them have a chance encounter outside the Edinburgh Anatomist's Society, neither realise that it will change their lives for ever . . .

[anatomical heart ornament to separate these sections?]

Despite being thrown out of Dr Beecham's lectures, Hazel is determined not to compromise on her ambitions. But without official lessons, Hazel will need more than just her books - she'll need corpses to study. Lucky that she's just made the acquaintance of someone who digs them up for a living.

Unfortunately, Jack has his own problems: dangerous men are skulking around the cemeteries, his friends are disappearing off the streets and the city slums are plagued with a mysterious illness. Nobody seems to care - until Hazel.

With so much on the line, Hazel and Jack must work together to uncover the secrets buried beyond the unmarked graves - in the very heart of Edinburgh society . . .
