At first glance this book seems rather bleak – and its major subject may well be – but this great novel is anything but. It has a wonderfully authentic feel, with much lightness and humour amongst the gloom! - Angus

Deep in the heart of Paris, its oldest cemetery is, by 1785, overflowing, tainting the very breath of those who live nearby. Into their midst comes Jean-Baptiste Baratte, a young engineer charged by the king with demolishing it. But before long, he begins to suspect that the destruction of the cemetery might be a prelude to his own.
