Spooky historical mystery
I thoroughly enjoyed this intelligent book which maintains a wonderful sense of tension throughout–Are there really ghosts? How do we understand the apparent ongoing presence in our lives of those who have died? Taylor manages to conclude his story quite satisfyingly–something that is tricky to do with this genre. Worthwhile read!

Interesting mystery with startling bawdiness!
Is there anything you would change about this book?
I felt that the author was slightly non-committal with his choice of genre. I enjoyed the mystery of the story but the bawdiness of the text was so sporadic that it startled me at times. It's a bit jarring when the text isn't overall humorous.
Would you be willing to try another book from Andrew Taylor? Why or why not?
Maybe. I'd give it a shot, but if I didn't love it then I would probably give up on this author.
What does John Telfer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He had amazing versatility with the characters' voices. It was as if I was hearing different actors for almost every character.
Did The Anatomy of Ghosts inspire you to do anything?
It inspired me to look for better mystery stories.
Any additional comments?
This mystery was interesting, I was just hoping it would be more so. It isn't an awful book. It's a fun read, and should only be read as such.
