    William Burke and William Hare begin targeting victims and perfecting their murder method: Burking (look it up in the dictionary). Dr. Robert Knox’s classes are at capacity now…he’s making loads of money. He and his assistants happily hand over money to Burke and Hare…and never ask questions. But soon all three would meet a woman who would change everything—and put their business at risk.

    The Body Snatcher: Bodies of Medicine

When a lodger at Hare’s boarding house suddenly dies the pair meets Dr. Robert Knox, one of the world’s most sought-after anatomy professors.
