That peace is challenged when a mutilated body is discovered: Dr. McCrory, an American alienist whose methods include phrenology, Mesmerism, and sexual-mystical magnetation. Chad Hobbes, recently arrived from England, is the policeman who must solve the crime"--

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.
