The idea for Desecration came
from a visit to the Hunterian
Museum in London, where
anatomical specimens line the
walls.
!
It made me wonder about how
the physical body defines us in
life … and in death.

Jamie Brooke is a British police
detective who struggles against the
rules and yet remains passionate
about bringing justice to the dead.
Jamie’s escape into
tango comes from my
own obsession with this
‘vertical expression of a
horizontal desire.’

Blake Daniel, the
reluctant psychic who
helps Jamie on the
case, works at the
British Museum as a
researcher.
!
My writing always has
an edge of the
supernatural …
The anatomical Venus
figures, like the one found at
the crime scene, were
popular teaching devices as
well as pieces of art

Teratology is the study of ‘monsters,’ abnormalities in
physiological development, often caused by genetic or
environmental factors.

The Victorian ‘freak shows’ were made up of people born
misshapen and the medical museums are full of their remains.
But what if they were created deliberately?

The Bodies exhibition in New
York gave me the idea for
Rowan Day-Conti and his
macabre corpse art
sculptures

Researching that
alternative world led
me to body
modification and the
Torture Garden
nightclub.
!
It’s fascinating to see
how people use the
body as a canvas to
define themselves.

This tattoo was
the inspiration for
the exotic dancer,
‘O’

Seen at the
National Gallery,
London, Seduced

exhibition.
!
Richard Learoyd's Man with
Octopus Tattoo II, 2011
A visit to the Hellfire
Caves of West
Wycombe, rife with
rumours of Satanic
ritual and sexual
depravity, inspired
some of the climactic
scenes
