Overview

Death isn't always the end.

LONDON. When the body of a young heiress is found within the Royal College of Surgeons, Detective Sergeant Jamie Brooke is assigned to the case. An antique ivory figurine found beside the body is the only lead and she enlists Blake Daniel, a reluctant clairvoyant, to help her discover the message it holds.

When personal tragedy strikes, Jamie finds her own life entwining with the morbid fascinations of the anatomists, and she must race against time to stop them claiming another victim.

As Jamie and Blake delve into a macabre world of grave robbery, body modification, and the genetic engineering of monsters, they must fight to keep their sanity, and their lives.

"A riveting exploration of the dark side of the human heart" ?New York Times Bestselling Author CJ Lyons

"In a book which takes the reader on a journey to hell and back, J.F. Penn demonstrates her huge talent for conveying the depths of human depravity." ?Amazon #1 Bestseller, Rachel Abbott

    I¿d previously read J.F. Penn¿s Pentecost, the first book in her

    I’d previously read J.F. Penn’s Pentecost, the first book in her Arkane thriller series, and was struck by how both this book and that one combined history and obscure (at least to me) areas of knowledge with the action happening in contemporary times. Although each book is very different, they both kept me off balance and constantly guessing where the story was going to go. That’s one of the main things I look for in a thriller. It’s hard to get excited if you know what’s coming.




    I got drawn into the struggles of the protagonist, Jamie. Not only in solving this case, but her personal life. Thriller readers should find Desecration well worth their time.
