From No.1 bestselling author Andrew Taylor comes the sequel to the phenomenally successful The Ashes of London

A time of terrible danger…
The Great Fire has ravaged London. Now, guided by the Fire Court, the city is rebuilding, but times are volatile and danger is only ever a heartbeat away.

Two mysterious deaths…
James Marwood, a traitor's son, is thrust into this treacherous environment when his father discovers a dead woman in the very place where the Fire Court sits. The next day his father is run down. Accident? Or another murder…?

A race to stop a murderer…
Determined to uncover the truth, Marwood turns to the one person he can trust – Cat Lovett, the daughter of a despised regicide. Then comes a third death… and Marwood and Cat are forced to confront a vicious killer who threatens the future of the city itself.

Industry Reviews

"This is how historical crime should be written, with rich authenticity underpinning a twisting plot."
The Times

"With a fast-moving, complex plot underpinned by solid but unobtrusive research and plenty of drama and intrigue, Taylor brings the 17th century to life so vividly that one can almost smell it."
Guardian

"Once again, Taylor combines his detailed research with a deviously twist-laden storyline.'
Observer

"This gripping mystery is even better than its predecessor, The Ashes of London."
Sunday Express S Magazine
