A Lovely Way to Burn Synopsis

It doesn't look like murder in a city full of death. A pandemic called 'The Sweats' is sweeping the globe. London is a city in crisis. Hospitals begin to fill with the dead and dying, but Stevie Flint is convinced that the sudden death of her boyfriend Dr Simon Sharkey was not from natural causes. As roads out of London become gridlocked with people fleeing infection, Stevie's search for Simon's killers takes her in the opposite direction, into the depths of the dying city and a race with death. A Lovely Way to Burn is the first outbreak in the Plague Times trilogy. Chilling, tense and completely compelling, it's Louise Welsh writing at the height of her powers.

I was with Louise Welsh's gutsy gripping heroine Stevie Flint every terrifying step of the way Kirsty Wark, author of The Legacy of Elizabeth Pringle

 

I read it in two sittings, pausing only to sleep and dream about it. Gripping, perfectly paced and beautifully written -  Erin Kelly, author of The Poison Tree

 

A terrifying journey into the possible, this is dystopia for today. Feral, frightening and fascinating, A Lovely Way to Burn gripped and chilled me in equal measure -  Val McDermid

 

The first in a trilogy, and it should be huge Bookseller I've felt for a while that we are in the mood for an intelligent slice of London-based dystopia, and I think Louise Welsh has cracked it with A Lovely Way to Burn ... it kept me up all night nervously turning the pages  - Cathy Rentzenbrink, Bookseller
