Mississippi Author Matthew Guinn

The Resurrectionist by Matthew Guinn

Dr. Jacob Thacker is on probation for Xanax abuse and temporarily working PR for the medical school. He is the first one contacted when a construction team uncovers a large number of human bones in the basement of the administration building. There have been rumors for years about the existence of slave remains in that building and now it may have just been confirmed. With this, we are taken back to the years working up to the Civil War where we meet Dr. Johnston and the college’s slave, Nemo. Between the two stories, both past and present, we are able to see one college’s history and the extent they once went to teach and the extent they may go to now to cover up the past. Or will they?
