When the Hunter brothers came to eighteenth century London, surgery was scorned by physicians. Flesh was butchered by ignorant hacks and bleeding was the cure for all ills.

Cleanliness was almost unknown, and in that whore-infested city venereal disease was rife. In this great novel, Garet Rogers tells of William and John Hunter, who revolutionised the science of healing, battling dirt, ignorance and disease with the cold steel of surgery.
