Publisher's Summary

The murder of a man on London Bridge is the first indication that the Earl of Clarendon's fears of a rebellion may be well-founded. His spy, Thomas Chaloner, suspects the assassin may be a member of a group dedicated to seeing the return of Puritanism, and at the same time he learns of a faction determined to bring back the Catholic Church. As he moves unobtrusively between White Hall, the Strand and the heaving congestion on the Bridge, he becomes aware of an undercurrent of restlessness in the capital.
And it soon becomes clear that the groups he is investigating are planning some extraordinary climax to achieve their separate aims on Shrove Tuesday, which gives him very little time to thwart their intentions…

A good theme.....

Better narrator.

The narration.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

By not giving the right emphasis on paragraphs


What character would you cut from A Murder on London Bridge?

There were far too many characters and a number could have been cut.


Any additional comments?

I loved the idea of the old London Bridge with the houses on it being the site of a murder..... and I was looking forward to much more historical detail and was very disappointed. I did not get a feel for the characters and did not really care what happened and gave up towards the end.
