London, September 1666. The Great Fire rages. Among the crowds watching as flames reduce St. Paul’s Cathedral to ruins is Richard Marwood, son of a disgraced printer and reluctant government informer. When a semi-mummified body is discovered in the ashes in what should have been an empty tomb, Marwood is tasked with hunting a killer across the devastated city.
