Edinburgh, 1878. A series of bizarre assaults on women in its notorious brothels has baffled police. The university is in turmoil over its decision to admit women. And young medical student Arthur Conan Doyle meets two men who will change his life.
The charismatic and brilliant university academic Dr. Joseph Bell is also a pioneering forensic detective. As he and Doyle begin to investigate the increasingly freakish crimes, they realize they are dealing with a new and terrifying kind of murderer -- a man who kills for the art of it.
Moving from the black heart of old Edinburgh to the opium dens of London's docklands, The Night Calls is a compelling story of the fight against an evil that would one day be immortalized as 'Moriarty'.
