First came Plague, now comes Fire. The epic tale of the hunt for a serial killer threatening London's rich and poor during the Great Fire of London. Perfect for fans of S J Parris and C J Sansom.
C.C. (Chris) Humphreys - born in Toronto, raised in London - is an actor, playwright, fight choreographer and novelist. 'My first job out of school was as a motorcycle messenger, based in St Giles, where much of Plague and Fire takes place. It was a ghastly slum in 1665, and thousands died horribly there in the Great Plague. And much of this area suffered during The Great Fire of London in 1666. I think many Londoners have a deep-buried memory of the devastating things that have happened to their city. Walking those streets again, it's not hard to sense the bones just below the paving stones.' Chris has written nine historical fiction novels including The French Executioner, the Jack Absolute Series, Vlad and Shakespeare's Rebel. Fire is a thriller set in London 1666 and follows on from Plague.
Adept and entertaining historical fiction that has been thoroughly researched and accurately portrayed. * Historical Novels Review *
