The Anatomy of Ghosts
An Inquiry Into the Distressing Circumstances Surrounding An Alleged Apparition Lately Recorded in Cambridge, Set Down for the Curious in the Form of A NovelBook - 2010
1786, Jerusalem College, Cambridge. The ghost of Sylvie Whichcote is rumoured to be haunting Jerusalem, since disturbed fellow-commoner, Frank Oldershaw, claims to have seen the dead woman prowling the grounds. Desperate to salvage her son's reputation, Lady Anne Oldershaw employs John Holdsworth, author of The Anatomy of Ghosts, to investigate. But his arrival in Cambridge disrupts an uneasy status quo as he glimpses a world of privilege and abuse. And when Holdsworth finds himself haunted, not only by the ghosts of his dead wife, Maria, but also Elinor, the very-much-alive Master's wife, his fate is sealed.
