    Summary

    Time: January, 1831
    Something suspicious is happening at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital: corpses are brought in and sold to the surgeons, but Sherlock Holmes suspects foul play.
    He’s not alone: at Guy’s Hospital, Doctor John Watson refuses to pay twelve guineas for a body that he fears has been tampered with.
    The lives of the two men collide one frosty winter night and from that moment on, they will never be torn asunder.

    A macabre AU story of grisly murders, passion, sex and mystery, with an unambiguous happy ending; inspired by the London Burkers crimes, by several short stories written around that period and by the book The Vampyre Family by Andrew McConnell Stott. Also, a very big help was the Italian Boy by Sarah Wise, which chronicles grave robberies in 1830's London.

    The characters belong to ACD and the BBC. The story is mine, so please do not post anywhere else without express permission.

    Note 27 Feb: I have re-posted the work with minor corrections to some of the chapters. If you have read it already, the more serious revisions start from chapter 19.

    Note 17 March: This work is now complete.
