In 1828, two Irishmen named William Burke and William Hare murdered 16 people and disposed of the bodies to Dr Robert Knox at Edinburgh University for dissection, setting in motion a scandal that would rock the world's medical establishment. Writer Martin Conaghan and artist Will Pickering deliver a ghoulishly true story of medicine, murder and money set at the height of Edinburgh's enlightenment in a vein similar to Alan Moore's acclaimed graphic novel From Hell. In addition to the full length comic story, the book is also fully annotated. With an introduction by Judge Dredd writer Alan Grant and featuring a bonus gallery from Frank Quitely and Gary Erskine. "a ghoulish, yet fascinating account of murder, history, medicine and greed." - Forbidden Planet, "A shadowy tale of greed and violence." - The List, "Well paced, beautifully illustrated and painstakingly researched." - Down the Tubes, "Brimming with murder, intrigue, cover-ups, conspiracies, and mystery" - Sci-Fi Pulse
