Devoured (Hatton and Roumonde,
by D.E. Meredith
Release Date: October 26, 2010
London in 1856 is gripped by a frightening obssession. The specimen collecting craze is growing, and discoveries in far-off jungles are reshaping the known world in terrible and unimaginable ways. The new theories of evolution threaten to disrupt the fragile balance of power that keeps the sprawling city in chaotic order - a distruption that many would do about anything to prevent.
When the glamorous Lady Bessingham is found murdered in her bedroom, surrounded by her vast collections of fossils and tribal masks, Hatton and Roumonde are called in to examine the crime scene - and the body. In the new and suspicious world of forensics and autopsy examinations, Hatton and Roumonde are the best. In their efforts to help the infamous Inspector Adams track down the Lady's killer, Hatton and Roumonde uncover a trail of murders all connected to a packed of seditious letters that, if published, would change the face of society and religion irrevocably.
