Publisher's Summary

The brightest mind meets the darkest killer...1887.
When James Murray, a young Scottish doctor fascinated by the workings of the criminal mind, travels to the vibrant city of Turin, it is to study with Cesare Lombroso, the world-renowned criminologist. But just hours after his introduction to Lombroso, the discovery of a horrifically mutilated body in the nearby Piazza Statuto, and a note that appears to implicate the celebrated criminologist himself, changes everything.
With the help of his fellow apprentice, a local investigator and Lombroso's beautiful but enigmatic housekeeper, Murray must put his learning to the test and endeavour to understand the mind of a serial killer if he is to stop the rapidly escalating bloodbath and clear the name of his mentor.
Meet the world's first criminologist in this compelling, fast-paced historical thriller.

Well read but meandering

Good reader but from about halfway I got more and more impatient with the meandering story. It's not awful but it is tedious.
