9780099581178: Plague

From the acclaimed, bestselling author of The French Executioner, an epic and thrilling tale of a serial killer who threatens London's rich and poor during the Great Plague of 1665. If you enjoy novels by CJ Sansom and SJ Parris, you will love PLAGUE.

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 palaces, slipping under the doorways of the rich.

A mass murderer.

Plague.

Review:

"I’ve just finished Plague by C C Humphreys. Fast, exciting historical adventure to be read in huge gulps. A runaway carriage of a book: high speed, exciting. 1665 brilliantly recreated." (Conn Iggulden, author of WAR OF THE ROSES)

"The very best of history, mystery, romance and sheer fun. (Well, and a few rats…) London itself is as vivid a character as the actors, adventurers and intriguers. Plague is one of those books where you turn the last page and wish there were more." (Diana Gabaldon, author of the OUTLANDER series)

"Pacy, exciting. A brilliant depiction of seventeenth-century London in all its glory and grime." (Simon Scarrow, author of THE BLOOD CROWS)

"A glorious white-knuckle ride through a London torn apart by recent civil war and caught on the edge of plague. The plot is a perfect crime thriller with something new round each corner: always unexpected, always satisfying. This matches the earthy lyricism of Pepys with the crime-crafting talents of a Rankin or a Cornwell in a vibrant, utterly immersive wonder of a novel. Impossible to put down!" (Manda Scott, author of BOUDICA)

"With kings and cripples, rats and rotters, highwaymen and loose women, you’d never think a lethal virus could be so much fun." ( Sunday Sport)
