Publisher's Summary

London, May 1665. On a dark road outside London, a simple robbery goes horribly wrong when the gentlemanly highwayman, William Coke, discovers that his intended victims have been brutally slaughtered. Suspected of the murders, Coke is forced into an uneasy alliance with the man who pursues him--the relentless thief-taker, Pitman.
Together they seek the killer and uncover a conspiracy that reaches from the glittering, debauched court of King Charles to the worst slum in the city, St .Giles in the Fields. But there's another murderer moving through the slums, the taverns, and the palaces, slipping under the doorways of the rich. A mass murderer. Plague.

Brilliant and colourful.

With kings and cripples, rats and rotters, highwaymen and loose women, you’d never think a lethal virus could be so much fun!

Kept me enthralled

Thoroughly enjoyed this! C C Humphreys is superb at narration. As he knows his characters he manages to bring them alive through voice and expression. Definitely recommend this and would love to hear C C Humphreys narrate more of his work.
