A royal scandal that could change the face of England forever...
London 1667. In the Court of Charles II, it's a dangerous time to be alive - a wrong move could lead to disgrace, exile or death. The discovery of a murder at Clarendon House, the palatial home of one of the highest courtiers in the land, could have catastrophic consequences.
James Marwood, a traitor's son, is ordered to cover up the murder. But the dead man is Edward Alderley, the cousin of one of Marwood's acquaintances. Cat Lovett had every reason to want her cousin dead. Since his murder, she has vanished, and all the evidence points to her as the killer.
Marwood is determined to clear Cat's name and discover who really killed Alderley. But time is running out for everyone. If he makes a mistake, it could threaten not only the government but the King himself...
Read more about the background and history that lies behind the bestselling James Marwood novels as Andrew Taylor gives an insight into the research that influenced The Ashes of London.
