Check out this 12-page preview from My Ebook, which includes all of the second chapter - A Woman From Gilmerton - about one of Burke and Hare's earliest victims, Abigail Simpson.

Abigail was a salt-seller from the Gilmerton area of Edinburgh who was lured back to Burke and Hare's lodging house at number 10 Tanner's Close in Edinburgh, plied with alcohol and smothered to death before being carted off to the medical halls at 10 Surgeons' Square where she was sold to the dissectionist Dr Robert Knox and carved up in the name of medical science.
