I wasn't sure about this book at first; it's written in the style of literature of its time, which took me a while to settle into. Then, at around 10%, it began to 'click'.
Young doctor Adam Bascom comes across a body in a churchyard, which he soon finds out to be that of a person of some importance. A verdict of accidental death is given swiftly, but Adam believes that the truth is being covered up. Much of the story is about his unravelling of the mystery, but this is far from all there is to it.
