Publisher's Summary

From the number one best-selling author of The Ashes of London and The Fire Court comes the next audiobook in the phenomenally successful series following James Marwood.

A royal scandal that could change the face of England forever.

London, 1667. In the court of Charles II, it's a dangerous time to be alive. A wrong move could lead to disgrace, exile or death. The discovery of a murder at Clarendon House, the palatial home of one of the highest courtiers in the land, could have catastrophic consequences.

James Marwood, a traitor's son, is ordered to cover up the murder. But the dead man is Edward Alderley, the cousin of one of Marwood's acquaintances. Cat Lovett had every reason to want her cousin dead. Since his murder, she has vanished, and all the evidence points to her as the killer.

Marwood is determined to clear Cat's name and discover who really killed Alderley. But time is running out for everyone. If he makes a mistake, it could threaten not only the government but the king himself.

Gripping page turner

I thoroughly enjoyed book 3... more adventures with Cat and Marwood.

This book offers a rare snippet of a phase of history we know little about.. Charles 2, the intrigues, loyalties and scheming.. The plot is fast paced and I found that I couldn’t wait to llisten to it everyday. I am so delighted that there is book 4, which I’ve bought already. A superb historical thriller, which includes the attitudes, morals and values of it’s time in history. Fascinating..,,

Another excellent book

Another excellent instalment in this series by Andrew Taylor.Full of intrigue and a murder mystery at the court of Charles II. The narration by Leighton Pugh is perfect. I found the historical
background and description of London so interesting. But it is mainly the story that is gripping. I listened to it practically non stop.

Excellent series

Couldn’t wait for this book to come out as a follow up to Ashes of London and The Fire Court. It did not disappoint and moved the story along at a good pace. Now I have to wait for the next one.

I wonder if they will get together!

I didn't expect that ending. I am looking forward to the next episode, she's so frustrating!
