Synopsis of book»

Meeting in the ashes of a London ravaged by the Great Fire, Christopher Redmayne, an architect with Cavalier instincts, and Jonathan Bale, a Puritan constable, are hardly kindred spirits. Redmayne dedicates himself to rebuilding the city that Bale believes was destroyed by its own inner corruption.

The two men are thrown together when they catch thieves who are stealing from the house that Redmayne has designed for Sir Ambrose Northcott. The foul murder of Sir Ambrose joins them again, albeit reluctantly, in a complex and perilous investigation that takes them through the brothels and gaming houses of London, across to Paris, and back again to the hedonistic Court.

What Critics Have Said»

'Marston has a solid grip on his craft and all his books are well-written, well-researched and a most enjoyable read...and THE KING'S EVIL is a nicely convoluted plot. One of the joys of Marston's novels is the light touch of humour and Bale and Redmayne reacting to each other can make a reader laugh out loud. Highly Recommended.'Historical Novels Review
