Summary
This is the story of a young man growing up in England in 1828. Thomas Timewell lives a rather sedate life with his mother, but all that changes when he meets a man who steals corpses from cemeteries and sells them to hospitals for dissection. At first reluctantly and later willingly Thomas follows Plenitude, as the man calls himself, through a series of macabre and dangerous escapades that include murderous bodysnatchers, a vengeful teacher, and a mad woman of the moors
