At the center of the tale is the prominent author and public figure Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who is offered a surprise opportunity to confirm his unconventional views about the spirit world when he receives a letter purportedly signed by Dr. Bernard Gussmann, the psychiatrist who had treated Doyles father years earlier, and then died. The letters offer is irresistible—a chance to commune with the deceased. In exchange, however, Doyle must do a puzzling favor for the mysterious correspondent.

Is the letter a hoax, or can Gussmann somehow still live? Is someone trying to exploit Doyles beliefs by assuming the identity of a dead man? Eager to learn the truth, Doyle seeks help from American reporter Charles Baker and Adrianna Wallace, the comely wife of a Member of Parliament. The duo soon become participants in a deadly game of musical chairs. With the rich period detail of The Alienist, set amid evocative scenes of 1920s London, Graves Gate introduces an impressive new voice to the world of literary thrillers.
