Publisher's Synopsis

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.

1666.

The Great Plague has passed. Londoners celebrate survival in different ways. They drink. They gamble. They indulge in carnal delights.

But 666 is the number of the Beast, the year foretold when Christ will return. A gang of fanatics - the Saints - choose to hasten that prophesied day. They will kidnap, rape, murder. Above all, they will kill a king.

Two men - the highwayman William Coke and the thief-taker Pitman - are recruited to stop them.

Then in the early hours of September 2nd, 1666, something starts that will overtake them all.

London's a tinder box. Politically, sexually, religiously. Literally. It is about to burn.
