First edition. Signed by the author. Author's first book. Fine in fine dust jacket. Chief Insp. Castle is asked to investigate the grotesque murder of Nikki Exner, a worker at St. Benjamin's Museum of Pathology, who has been raped and then horribly executed. Since he is busy with many other tasks, he asks a former forensic pathologist, John Eisenmenger, to help with the case. The police have a suspect, but Eisenmenger doesn't agree with them. He teams up with solicitor Helena Flemming to find out what really happened to Nikki.
