Publisher's Summary

The Great Fire has reduced London to smoldering embers. From the ashes, thief taker Charlie Tuesday is drawn to investigate a string of strange murders. Mutilated corpses are washing up at Deptford, each marked with a dire astrological prediction. But only London's best crime-solver realizes the killer's deadly offerings will soon unleash a devastating force on England.

With the help of Lily Boswell, a gypsy street-girl with a knife and a grudge, Charlie must find the killer and put a stop to the murders. And by doing so, the Thief Taker will find the man whose terrible destiny is entwined with his, their fates written in the dark stars...

His best story yet!

I got hooked with The Thief Taker (the first in series) and was delighted to discover two more books waiting. I listened to them straight through for an entire week! This one completely surprised me multiple times at the end. After reading all three stories, I have a much greater understanding of English history and the dawn of scientific inventions which shaped social understanding during the reign of King Charles (1666.)

Change of narrator

Great third episode in the thief taker series. It took a while to get used to the new narrator but still a great performance. Brilliantly written with lovely historic detail.

Frivolous Restoration Romp.

Would you try another book written by C. S. Quinn or narrated by Steve West?

No.

What could C. S. Quinn have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

A kernal of a good story ruined by preposterous female sidekick and clumsy sex scenes.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Steve West?

All the baddies spoke with deliberate, gruff voices (audible equivalent of twiddling the moustache).

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Yes. I can see why C S Quinn's books are popular.

A great read.

I can't wait for his next book, if it is anything like his first three it will be a bloody good read.
