"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 *
