Publisher's Summary

In the spring of 1348, tales begin of poisonous clouds fast approaching, which have overwhelmed whole cities, with scarcely a human being left.
While some pray earnestly, there are those who hope that God's wrath might be averted by pilgrimage. When a group of pilgrims are forced to shelter at an inn, their host encourages them to tell their stories of sin, so that it might emerge which one is the best. And the worst...


What the Critics Say

"With the combined imaginations of Bernard Knight… Susanna Gregory, Ian Morson, and Philip Gooden, this is a thoroughly enjoyable read" (Daily Mail on The Sacred Stone)
"The various excellent crime writers each weave a clever and inventive tale around a central theme" (Good Book Guide on King Arthur’s Bones)

Most Helpful

Meandering story not helped by meandering reader

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

This story, while interesting in places, does not really have a clear direction. It wanders all over the place and only briefly finds its footing. I wouldn't particularly recommend the book to a friend unless they really have nothing else on the go.

What three words best describe Colin Mace’s voice?

Great characterisation made off-putting by pauses and 'full stops' added. Where they should not be. Like that!

Was The Deadliest Sin worth the listening time?

Not really, but I'd bought it, so persevered.

Any additional comments?
