A Plague of Sinners
E-book, E-Book (USA), Paperback
July 1665. As the great plague rages rampant outside London’s city walls, Harry Lytle returns after his trials and tribulations in The Sweet Smell of Decay to investigate the murder of the Earl of St. Albans.
A grisly dinner-table death starts Harry off on the trail and it’s not long before his familiar accomplice, Dowling the butcher, joins him on the case. Their master, Lord Arlington, tasks them with uncovering the name and motive of the Earl’s murderer – but there will be plenty more deaths and scrapes for Harry before the name is revealed.
