    The Anatomy of Ghosts

    By: Andrew Taylor

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    The year is 1786 and at Jerusalem College, Cambridge, the ghost of murdered Sylvia Whichcote has been sighted prowling the grounds by Frank Oldershaw, a disturbed fellow commoner. When his anxious mother employs John Holdsworth, author of The Anatomy of Ghosts – a stinging account of why ghosts are mere delusion – to investigate the sighting, the uneasy status quo at Jerusalem is rapidly torn apart.

    Holdsworth grows to realise that the sinister Holy Ghost Club governs the privileged life at Jerusalem with a rigour far more effective than anything the Master, Dr Carbury, could muster. And when Holdsworth finds himself haunted – not only by the ghost of his dead wife, Maria, but also Elinor, the very-much-alive Master's wife – his fate is sealed. He must unravel the circumstances surrounding Sylvia's death . . . or the hauntings will continue.
