The second in this gripping and grisly detective series set in the 1600’s. The Earl of St Albans has been murdered and Harry Lytle is charged with finding the murderer. Lawrence pays great attention to historical detail and is a master at creating a mysterious and ghoulish atmosphere. A great new historical crime series.
It's July 1665. The great plague rages rampant outside London's city walls. Harry Lytle makes a welcome return 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, head of the King's intelligence service, 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.
