The Plague Road
It’s 1665 and the Black Death has London in its hideous grip. Bad news for everyone…almost. Where better, after all, to hide a dead body than among a whole city full of dead bodies? And who gets the delightful task of pawing through the corpses, in search of the one that doesn’t belong, the one with some problematic papers in its pocket? John Grey, of course, the government’s favorite fixer, cursed with an inability to keep his mouth shut. Two-time Edgar nominee Tyler is an expert at balancing intricate plotting with one-liners; if only John Grey were half so skillful.
“A historical thriller, written with tongue firmly in cheek.... Tyler is a witty writer, and this third outing for Grey is great fun.” —The Sunday Times (London)
“An exciting, well plotted, and brilliantly witty historical mystery” —For Winter Nights
