About Here Walk the Dead
Arabella Holmes—yes, daughter of that Holmes—wants to return to her job as a purveyor of abnormal science. She has temporarily been demoted to a botanist, until her love interest, Henry Watson—yes, that Watson—can help her get her less-than-professional outbursts in check.
Henry is tired of his new role as doctor, tired of the lack of adventure, and tired of keeping Bella’s escapades out of the papers.
Five girls are missing. Gone from locked rooms in their own houses. Arabella and Henry are called upon to help solve the kidnappings, but all they unearth is more danger.
Bella ventures undercover into a lunatic asylum, where a mute woman assaults her and scrawls the chilling words—Here the dead wake. Plus, a vial of Bella’s research poison has gone missing. Bella and Henry must find it, and the missing girls, before charges can be brought against her.
My Review of Here Walk the Dead
Thanks to the publisher, I received an advanced copy of Here Walk the Dead in order to share my opinions with you.
Here Walk the Dead is a wonderful follow-up to Boneseeker. In Boneseeker, we were introduced to Arabella Holmes and Henry Watson. Like her father, Arabella has a brilliant mind, but she doesn’t do very well interacting with people. She lets very few people close to her. Henry is surprised to find that in his absence, Arabella made a friend in a bartender named Oliver. And he’s less than happy when he finds out that Oliver is aware of Arabella’s secret, self-assigned under-cover missions at the lunatic asylum.
Arabella, never wanting to be told what to do or not do, keeps her missions from Henry because she knows he wouldn’t approve. His concern for her safety is out of love. Arabella loves him as well, but she is so afraid of being controlled by someone else. When she finds out what is really going on at the asylum, she can’t stay away.
I don’t want to spoil the book for you, so I will just tell you that you are going to love Here Walk the Dead. Definitely read Boneseeker first! Though you could just jump in here, you get a lot of background information on the characters in Boneseeker. I love this story because it is super suspenseful, and much of the plot is historically accurate. The way that some people used to view “damaged” members of society is so frightening. We’ve come a long way since then, but there is still much prejudice and ignorance. I highly recommend Here Walk the Dead and Boneseeker!

Aspiring scientist Arabella Holmes doesn’t fit the role of a 1900s lady. Her father, Sherlock, landed her a position at the Mütter Museum to pursue her dream of becoming a purveyor of abnormal science, or what her father calls a “Boneseeker.”
Henry Watson’s two-fold mission at the Mütter Museum is to join their team of forensic anthropologists in unearthing unusual antiquities and to watch over Arabella. If only he could get her to speak to him, instead of hurling knives in his general direction. Assigned to a most secret expedition to investigate a mysterious skeletal hand discovered in upstate New York, Arabella and Henry are soon caught in a scientific debate, and the search for the truth may have deadly consequences for those involved.
Are the bones from a Neanderthal? Or are they living proof of fallen angels known as Nephilim?
Watson and Holmes must put aside their differences, trust their instincts, and rely on one another to survive to uncover the truth.
