Matthew Bartholomew, unorthodox but effective physician to Michaelhouse college in medieval Cambridge, is as worried as anyone about the pestilence that is ravaging Europe and seems to be approaching England. But he is distracted by the sudden and inexplicable death of the Master of Michaelhouse - a death the University authorities do not want investigated.
But Matt is determined to get to the truth, leading him into a tangle of lies and intrigue that cause him to question the innocence of his closest friends - and even his family - just as the Black Death finally arrives.
A Plague on Both Your Houses is the book that introduced Matthew Bartholomew to the world.

I'm so pleased that you are starting to record Susanna Gregory's Mathew Barthomews from the beginning (at lest I hope you will continue)! AND having David Thorpe as narrator. No one brings these wonderful characters and books to life like he does. Keep them coming.
At last, the earlier books are coming to Audible. Sadly the narrator has changed from the old versions I have of some of the other books in the series, and now Michael has a quite effeminate voice which jarred with both those and my own impression of him. However, having enjoyed these stories and characters for so long I am happy to endure for the simple pleasure of having them on audio.
