Publisher's Summary

London, May 1665. On a dark road outside London, a simple robbery goes horribly wrong when the gentlemanly highwayman, William Coke, discovers that his intended victims have been brutally slaughtered. Suspected of the murders, Coke is forced into an uneasy alliance with the man who pursues him--the relentless thief-taker, Pitman.

Together they seek the killer and uncover a conspiracy that reaches from the glittering, debauched court of King Charles to the worst slum in the city, St .Giles in the Fields. But there's another murderer moving through the slums, the taverns, and the palaces, slipping under the doorways of the rich. A mass murderer. Plague.

    "Brilliant and colourful."

    With kings and cripples, rats and rotters, highwaymen and loose women, you’d never think a lethal virus could be so much fun!

    Story
    "Almost as good as Company of Liars"
    Would you listen to Plague again? Why?

    Probably not, but I'm not one to return to novels.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Captain Coke of course - such a superb character and darn good bloke.


    What does C. C. Humphreys bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Great that this was read by the author, he really put his heart and soul into it. These days I really prefer audio books.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Bring out your dead !


    Any additional comments?

    Great story that really gets on with it and is a romp through plague infested London. Loved every minute and was sorry when it ended.

    "Kept me enthralled"

    Thoroughly enjoyed this! C C Humphreys is superb at narration. As he knows his characters he manages to bring them alive through voice and expression. Definitely recommend this and would love to hear C C Humphreys narrate more of his work.

    An interesting and exciting book. I hope there will be more books with these characters. I generally avoid audiobooks read by their authors but in this case the author actually is a very good narrator.
