In Victoria, 1869, a mutilated body is discovered in the forest: Dr McCrory, an American 'alienist' whose methods include phrenology, mesmerism, and sexual-mystical 'magnetation'. Chad Hobbes, newly arrived from England, is the policeman who must solve the crime. Could the murderer be a Tsimshian medicine man, Wiladzap, who is immediately arrested. But everyone who has known McCrory--respectable or not--has something to hide.

I was excited to read a book set in the Canadian NW during the reign of Victoria. It has an excellent mystery but gets bogged down in the details. In particular, the descriptions of the walk from town to the tribe settlement and the "translation" of conversations from English to Chinook and back. I doubt I will read any others by this author.
