James Marwood and Cat Lovett Series

A city in flames . . .
London, 1666. As the Great Fire consumes everything in its path, the body of a man is found in the ruins of St Paul’s Cathedral — stabbed in the neck, thumbs tied behind his back.

A woman on the run . . .
The son of a traitor, James Marwood is forced to hunt the killer through the city’s devastated streets. There he encounters a determined young woman, who will stop at nothing to secure her freedom.

A killer seeking revenge . . .
When a second murder victim is discovered in the Fleet Ditch, Marwood is drawn into the political and religious intrigue of Westminster — and across the path of a killer with nothing to lose.
