1807. As a young boy, Brogan O'Malley encounters the strange and enigmatic Darcy on the streets of Edinburgh. Ten years pass and Brogan, now a petty thief, meets her once again and is surprised to discover she has not aged one day.

A further ten years later, it's 1827, and Brogan's life has taken a turn for the worse. About to become involved with unscrupulous bodysnatchers, William Burke and William Hare, the reappearance of the ageless Darcy sees Brogan discover a secret that will change his life forever.

The Story Behind This Book
Having come up with an idea for a series about time-travelling assassins, I wrote this prequel regarding one of the characters before he became an assassin. Knowing some history of Edinburgh, I decided to use that setting within the time period of notorious real-life bodysnatchers, Burke and Hare, who make an appearance in the book.
